Take VIIBRYD with food and exactly as your doctor has instructed. VIIBRYD may not work as effectively on an empty stomach. Also DO NOT take with anything containing grapefruit. Or grapefruit juice. It can kill you. It can increase the dosage up to ten times.
The reason might be so that the food can protect the inside of your stomach from being irritated by the medicine. This prevents stomach side effects or stomach upsets. The medicine may also be able to work well with food as opposed to an empty stomach.
