Good Evening Everyone!
I have been on anti-depressants for since about
1997, there has been so many advances, new meds & now they have taken me "slowly" off Zoloft & Clonazepam, I am currently on Nuerontin & Lexapro. The Nuerontin is for pain management (fibro) & anxiety, which seems to be one of the better meds ((FOR ME)) with less side effects. I have in the past understood more about
the side effects of coming off of an anti-depressant w/o tapering off, but never having so many starting one. I have been on Prozac, Zoloft, Wellbutrin and it just seems like the effects are weighing out the possibility of me remaining on this med, since the minor side effects are what I feel are also counter-acting the Nuerontin's work on my pain management.
My question is the Lexapro. I have been started on Lexapro about
2 weeks ago. Has anyone here had any success with this new med? With or Without Nuerontin?
I am confused about
this...is it normal for some & not others? I want to stay well...any help or info (I have been to the websites, talked with my family doc, pain management docs/nurses & psych. doctors about
this med & all say that it may not be for me...well DUH!!) But I would appreciate some feedback from those who are or have been on this med. Both positive & negative.
