Hi all,
I normally post in anxiety/panic, but all this started with major depression with me. I have been on Lexapro about a year and a half, and my depression seemed to have gone away, but every once in a while it just comes back for no apparent reason. 2 nights ago, I just started feeling sad and cried myself to sleep, and last night felt kind of the same (without the crying part). The depression was much worse for me than anything that I have ever experienced, and I had to go on meds and into therapy just to function at all. I had to take a leave of absence from my job for 3 months because of it, and I sure don't want to ever feel like that again. I am still on my meds of course, but can they just stop working, or is this just another bump in the road? I hope this doesn't last.. Thanks for any advice.

Hi Bear, It is nice to see you over here :-) .  Yes, antidepressants over time can build up in our bodies and start to become less effective.  It all depends on the medication, dosage and of course your own personal chemical system.  If this started for no apparent reason then perhaps you may want to give your doc a call to see about an adjustment in your dosage.  Most times this does help to level you off and prevent another major depressive episode. 
Please do let us know how your doing....take care :-)
