Is this normal with Lexapro?

I am also taking Klonopin and Wellbutrin.

How long have you been on these meds? It usually takes four to six weeks for the antidepressant part to reach its full effect. You might want to talk about a medication adjustment in my humble opinion.

And it could be your situation. Is there anything going on that woould cause the depression?

I hope that you feel better soon.

What I have been told my my Pdoc is the Lexapro will help with the anxiety but the Wellbutrin is not an SSRI and may cause and increase in anxiety. I would talk to your physician re the depression becoming worse as that is normally a warning on the AD's.

Now please remember, that is just what she said  and every person is different.  I am not a professional.  :)

I hope you soon start to feel better.
