HI everyone I am new to this forum. I have been diagnosed with depression a few years ago & was on Zoloft. Well, my insurance ran out & I wasn't able to refill my prescript
ion. That was about
a year ago. I now have insurance and my doctor prescribed me Lexapro. What are your ideas about
the 2 and which do you prefer, if you have tried the two? The Zoloft seemed to have worked for me, but my doc said the Lexapro has less side affects, which sounds good to me. My depression has gotten completely out of hand the last few months; my husband was laid off work, my job is horrible, financial problems, marital problems, etc. So I am needing to go back on my med's desperatly. I cry at the drop of a hat, I sit at my desk sometimes at work & Just start tearing up for no real reason except that I feel sadder then I can ever explain...I feel like I am walking around in a dark thick cloud that won't go away no matter how I hard I try. Oh, and my husband is ANTI, ANTI, ANTI med's. He doesnt think I should have to take a pill to make me feel better. Well if he experienced what I do, I think he would change his mind. I have tried explaining to him how I feel, but he doesn't understand so I gave up on trying to make or help him understand, it was a waste of breath.
Anyways, your help will be greatly appreciated. sorry for this long post, I have so much on my mind that I don't even know where to start to explain...
thanks you all!
