I am taking a different combo...Risperdal and Zoloft. But with my past experience witth Lexapro....I had been diagnosed as clinically depressed and put on 10 mg. of Lexapro. This dosage was never increased. I am now with a new doctor and a new therapist and both were surprised that 1...I was only diagnosed a depressed, and not obviously Bipolar, and 2....was only kept on 10 mg of Lexapro. They both told me that I should have been moved up quite a bit in mg.
Since you have been on these meds for 5 weeks you may want to talk to your doctor about an increase in dosage....or even a medication change. Keep your dr. updated on what you are feeling.
I have been on my meds for 2 months now...and it really took almost that entire time for me to really feel their effects.
