My sister started on Zoloft but could not tolerate it. She switched to Lexipro but had high anxiety with it, which apparently is one of the side effects. Her dotor prescribed Welbutrin and that relieved the anxiety. She is VERY happy with her results and told me it took about
a week or so before there was any noticable results for her. I'm on Zoloft and know that all of the seritonon reuptake inhibitors require a slow withdrawal and close supervision if you think you want to discontinue taking them. Please be careful and stay in contact with your doctor for further care and follow-up. I have been on Zoloft for 6 weeks and have not missed a dose, but I understand that you can feel "odd" if you miss.
Take care of yourself and keep up with the Lexipro!
