I'm also a few days into Lexapro.
A brief history- zoloft for 14 years, wasn't addressing OCD thoughts and killed my sex drive. Dr. Tapered me off and started 75mg. Wellbutrin for 2 weeks then upped to 150mg.
After 2 weeks at higher dose i was pacing and agitated, so asked for a different med. (figured 4 weeks was long enough to see it if would start working.) Under Dr. advice went back down to 75mg wellbutrin and added 20mg. Lexapro. The first 2 days were scary- couldnt bear to eat, barely awake, dispair, nauseous. So, stopped Wellbutrin alltogether (because I was taking a low dose anyway.) and am taking 10mg Lexapro.
Today I'm functioning a bit better, but about
7 hours after taking my dose this morning I felt pretty 'high'. I did eat something and feel better, but really scared I won't ever be normal :(
Guess I'm just looking for some encouragement to stick it out and things will improve.
