i have just started on lexapro and i have to save i am seeing some major changes in myself
originally i was on mirtzapine 15mg soltab and i really used them to sleep as i work rotating shifts and weird hours but i was still having panic attacks and anxiety issues which hopitalized me on several occasions with concerns
my average day if i am not working is to sleep till noon - still feeling like crap i make an effort to get up - i try to excersice but i just dont find the energy most days and when i do i feel ill for a few days
heres the change : i started lexapro 10mg 2 days ago - first thing i noticed in the mornings is for some odd reason i woke up around 8am refreshed and feeling the need to get up and do something - before noon i had got up played with the kids, had shower, gone to the supermarket, got a hair cut, got some flowers for my wife and now at work feeling great - also my eyes feel strange like they are clearer or things appear more real - dunno its weird but yeah feeling great - lots of energy - and when i walk small areas i dont get rapid heart rates anymore - heart is rested ever since i started on the drug
this is very odd for me i am not complaining but i cant see how taking a drug can work so quickly
anyone else had similar effects - i havent noticed any side effects either

hi jamie here.

haven't noticed a drug work so quick for me, this is great for you. it is a very powerful anti-depressant. we are all different, this just might be the right medication for you. :-)
keep us posted.
