I love to eat too! Was also wondering if anyone takes diet pills while taking AD medication. I am waiting for the Stacker 3's with Ephedra to go on sale again, they helped me so much in the past? Any advice on taking the two together. I take my Lexapro around 6:00 pm (it makes me sleepy). Thanks again for your quick response.
Thank's scaredy cat!!!!
I know you are right about the diet pills. This is my 2nd week, I started out on 10 mgs but that was way too much, weird feeling in my head and so sleepy!!!! and headaches!!! told me to back down to 5 mgs or a 10 mg everyother day, decided on the 5mgs at night. Working much better!!! Maybe all in my head but I can already tell a difference! Hope it will continue! It is so good to have people to talk with that understand!
Have a great day!
I hadn't thought of it like that, makes sense. I am truly more of a warm weater person, can't stand the cold!
Hi Momsgot2. I have not been on any SSRIS in the past. I fought hard not to get on Lexapro,but the anxiety and depression were overwhelming. I have very bad Ulcerative Colitis and am in a lot of pain. I am in law Enforcement and had to leave recently on a Medical Disability. The anxiety completely affected my driving abilities and I felt trapped. I started on Lexapro very slowly, 2.5 Mgs. Then increased to 5mgs. I am staying at 7.5mgs. The first 2-3 months were horrible and I called the Dr. several times to get off. I was always sweating, not sleeping. Had HORRIBLE head pain and felt bloated. I was also so tired all the time that I had to lay down daily. I am extremely energetic and athletic and this was horrible for me. I stuck it out and have never felt better. My husband and I are doing so well and I have completely gotten rid of the floating feeling, anger and rigid thinking. I am 34 years old and have been a Type A since I was born. Good Luck to you. I have heard good things about lexapro from many people. It also helped PMS pains and endometriosis pain. You will be in my prayers.
hi...i read the postings both on the anxiety page and here... i have been taking lexapro for 5 days now and i actually haven't had any real side effects..after reading all the side effects you guys have had, im kinda worried that maybe its not working or something? i was on luvox for 4 years and only had very mild side effects in the beginning so maybe it is just me...
i also want to know when this is giong to start to work, even a little bit... from what i read , some people say 10 days and others 2 months... i am just so sick of being depressed and worrying all the time and it is stopping me from living life... i have no confidence and i dont do anything right now..and i feel like i am wasting my life... could lexapro really help me get back to normal even if there are things in my life that are difficult and making me depressed?
