Hello Shy,
Ive recently been put on Lexapro i have been on Zoloft for at least 3yrs.
I was told to take 50mg of the Zoloft from 100mg & 10mg of the Lexapro.

Since ive started its been 2wks now & ive been getting horrible migraines. I can only assume its from the new med, ive changed nothing else.

What was the reason yu went off the Lexapro if yu dont mind me asking? And how did yu get off of all those meds?

Do yu feel any sort of anxiety at all now?

Since, then ive stopped the Lexapro the migraines are gone except every once in a long while, ive always suffered from migraines, just not every day for 2wks, on a new med.

Im just taking the 100mg of Zoloft now & like yu have been on many anti depressants, Wellbuturin,Prozac,Paxil,Buspar,Celexa,Xanax,
Klonopin,& currently on Valium thats one that i just keep going up on every yr.

Im on 40mg of valium & are begining to feel those tingly funny in the chest feelings, pounding heart bts.fatigue yu know the usual anxiety stuff.

Thank yu for reading this.

Hi Maddie
I stopped taking the lexapro for the same exact reason.
I could not take the headaches,and I needed more of a combo to help with the panic attacks too.

I would contact your doctor about the anxiety and see if they can give you something else.
It is normal to have to try several types of meds before you get the right one...everyone is different.

Hey there Shy...this leads me to a question for you.

When you were on the Lexapro...you were still having problems with Panic attacks? I am having a problem...I am on Lexapro 20 mg, and it is helping for my general anxiety, but isn't doing anything for my panic attacks. Well, it has lessoned them some, but not too much. I was having them daily, now I tend to have them 3 to 5 times a week. I think that is too much.

My question is, I know everyone is different, but what did YOU use after the Lexapro? If you don't mind me asking.

I meet with my PDOC on November 1st, and I have to do something about these darn panic attacks.

Thanks hun!

Hi Tammy

They had to put me on a harsh med called Tranxene,with Lexapro.

Then the last combo of meds was Tranxene,Wellbutrin,and Tylenol 3w/codine for the headaches and joint pain associated with depression.

Thanks Shy.

I am just trying to get some ideas of the different combinations I may see while trying to find the right drug, or drug combo.

Thank you for sharing!
