I'm on Lexapro.
Lyn- Lexapro is like Prozac only because it comes from the same kind of drugs.. which are SSRI's.. it doesn't necessarily make them alike, but they are both SSRI's.
I take 20 mgs a day, I like the med... suits me well... curves those anxious thoughts...
tonight I travelled pretty dang far from my house.. I think I'll give credit to not only the Lexapro and Ativan/Lorazepam.. but willpower.
I forced myself to go.. I didn't even want to go and kept going inside my house while the car was running and was freaking out... not wanting to go.. but forced myself to go and am actually having fun.
Lexapro is a great med for me personally... but is not right for everyone.
Giving it a shot wouldn't hurt. :)
