i felt the need to update once again on my situation, as i stated in my last thread i had recently begun to take zoloft for my depression and adhd, it helped alot with my anxiety and it just soothed me and i felt calm, i hadnt felt that great in years, but then the side effects started showing in full force, i had stomach aches, and i would tremble, so today i went to my doctor to inform to him that i had stopped taking the medication i took it for six days and then i couldnt handle the side effects any longer its been six days since i stopped taking them and today he prescribed lexapro 10 mgs but of course for me to just take half the tablet for 7 days, im oraying that everything goes well, and that my body reacts better to this medication, im pretty petite so i assume that was why the medication was soo hard on me, but im hopeful that lexapro will be great for me, but i also assumed that there was really no concern if i took lexapro a week after i stopped taking zoloft since my doctor prescribed it to me today even after i told him i stopped taking zoloft, is it okay to do so, and has this ever happened to anyone ? :) also he said he would prescribe adderall when i start school in january, is it bad to mix lexapro with adderall ? :) my doctor told me it wasnt and i believe him but id love to hear others opinions. and i was born with emotinal issues(adhd, depression and all of the symptoms related to the two, my doctors told my mom when i was born) , has this also happened to anyone :) thanks for reading :)

Hi there,

I have the same problems as you. I take the meds and they work well for a long time, then the side effects kick in and I can't function. I am glad you are starting the lexapro. And I think that it is good that you are going to take the adderall when you start college. I take adderall too and it works well for me. I take pristiq and abilify and xanax. So I think you are going to be on a good combination. Pristiq is a little like lexapro.

I don't know how the doctors could know all this when you were born. Did your mom maybe suffer with these things so they assumed you would? What did they do to come up with these conclusions. I had depression as a teenager. And when I was nine or ten. But not as a baby.

Best wishes to you today.

Hugs, Karen

thank you so much for your encouraging words :)
it means alot :)


my mom did not have emotional issues , shes a really strong woman and my inspiration to keep fighting, but since i was born at just a pound and a half they told her ahead of time that i would have either emotional problems or physical and thank god the physical problems never presented themselves but the emotional did, by the age of six i already had very bad emotional issues emotional issues that i didnt know would progress i felt like i was alone and that everything was against me and that i wasnt good enough for anyone not even for my parents i would worry constantly, i was anxious all the time, i wanted to get away, move far far away to run away from my issues as i got older it affected my life in such a way that brought strife to my life a constant struggle, and i didnt know what to make of it at the age of six, it started getting worse in middle school, high school, and i just didnt know what to do with myself, until i realized that enough was enough i was torturing myself and i couldnt control it, i had no control of my life i never have, until now. i would never wish what i went through upon anyone else, i realize god does everything for a reason, and i just put my trust in him that i'll be okay.

thanks for listening getting by :)

Hi Hurt,

I didn't realize that you were so little when you were born. I can see now what the doctor's meant. I am glad that you didn't suffer any physical problems on top of everything else. You sound like such a strong person. I am sure it is within you somewhere.

You will learn that we can't control everything around us. We have to let go. It is scarey, but it must be done. I remember one day I realized that I was actually happy with my life and it scared me so much. I was always on alert at one time. Worrying about what would happen next. I was trying to control everything around me. And being happy and not worrying scared me. I now take life in stride. I have to. It is the only way to live. And live in the now. Put the past behind you and face each day as it is a new day to live and learn. Life is such a learning process. And you are right, everything happens for a reason. It will be shown to you in the future.

I guess the thing that really taught me to live one day at a time is having fibromyalgia. You never know if you are going to feel good or not the next day. So I started taking each day as it comes. So something good came out of something bad.

I hope that this helps in some small way.

Hugs, Karen
