Kitt - I didn't vote either, I was looking for one with "yes, after consulting doctor."
Scotty- your doctor knows your situation and what else you may need to be on. I know with Lexapro the go up in increments, just like you would go down slowly if you were being changed to something else. The two of you together will find what dosage works for you, or find another med.
I worry about you, and I hope that each day gets a bit better for you. It isn't going to happen overnight, but it will happen.

L4-5 surgery with cages, plates, and screws in 2005, I have continued pain

To handle yourself, use your head...to handle others, use your heart
I'm going to smile like nothing is wrong, act like everything is perfect, and pretend its not hurting me.
