I am on different medications but asked doc for depression pill as I am deeply depressed.He prescribed Lexapro.
Do you think it’s good or any other you have used and it helped.

I never took Lexapro. I'm currently on Wellbutrin which works for me.
Every person, however, responds to medication differently. What may work for one person, may not work for another.

FP is right. The right medication for depression just depends on the person. So give the Lexapro a chance. Any antidepressant can take up to 4 weeks to work. The fact that you have asked for help tells me that you have inner strength, so I know that you can persist until you find the right medication for you. Hopefully, the Lexapro will be it.

I had really good results the first time I was on lexapro a couple years ago. I am restarting it right now and hoping it does the trick again. As mentioned above, it really is different for everyone. I'm having a hard time right now but hoping once the lexapro builds up in my system it will start to level out. Good luck and keep us updated!

I started out with buspar. Then tried Zoloft, paxil, and Prozac. All of which had bad side effects for me. I took Effexor and then tried serzone and Remeron. Went back to Effexor and took that for about 15 years. I am now on Pristiq and Lexapro. Which seem to be working well together. I also take abilify and Xanax. So it took me a long time to find what works for me. I do better with SNRI's than SSRI's. They seem to have less side effects for me.
It can actually take six to eight weeks for your medication to work full potential. So be patient and keep in touch with your doctor for concerns. I hope you feel better soon. I know you have been through a lot lately so be kind to yourself. I wish you the best.

It all all trial n error. Yup six to eight weeks for full kick in on a med. Some kick quicker....lexaoro is known to have this effect on some people. Keep 💪. HT
