Well, I am off the wellbutrin (after 3 days) and will start 5mg of lexapro tomorrow.  Have not been able to sleep at all the past 3 nights even though I took one and a half ambien with my neurontin last night.  Felt jittery, shaky, and more depressed on it.  Hope lexapro is the right one!
 
On a different note, it is beautiful today in Illinois; sunny, nice breeze, and in the 70's.  I have opened all of my windows. :-)

Hi Barb,

 

I hope lexapro is it! Hang in there, you will find the med that works for you.

I was on lexapro for a couple years, and it didn't really work for me. however, wellbutrin DID work for me so--lets hope it turns out to be the opposite for you! :) One word of caution though--if you ever need to go off the lexapro once you've been taking it for awhile, make SURE you lower your dose VERY VERY slowly. I was never told this, and must not have gone off slow enough, and got awful withdrawl Sx (i felt very sick, and got these wierd zappy feelings in my brain every couple minutes for a few days. At first i thought it was a MS relapse or something, but before i really freaked out, luckily i did a search online and found out what was going on!)

with that said, i really hope it works for you!! i've heard great things about it from other people ^_^
