hi there. common problem is this. the ones that tend to be the most effective chuck the weight on. i have used lexapro, but it pooped, albeit it was a good medication. your brain got use to the lexapro, and when we stop something, it is like, what ya doin' mate? maybe the the new drug is not the right fit for you. maybe other approaches might be. a chat with ya doc is what i recommend. some peeps need meds, others do not, some need therapy with meds, some need other treatments or techniques to help them along. i find that, fror me, a combo effect is the best. keep strong, and posting.
