Hello everyone, I'm new to all this , I been in and out of deression for two years. Recently I had to do so many changes in my life and another break up made feel very depressed more than ever. I was referred to therapy and she scored my depression to be very sever. Now she want me to start on Anti-depressent.
I went to my doctor and He wasn't very helpful but he recommended Lexapro.
I spend all day today researching and here are my concerns ranked from most important to least important
Sleepiness and or insomenia because I also suffered insomenia for 3 years and I'm not being treated for it till now
Fatigue I'm starting a new job and I want to make sure my energy levels are high its very important to me that I succeed.
My family are comletely against me starting on anti-depressent but I know that I need some help and since with current circumstances I cant feel better from my surrounding I'm thinking medication will be helpful for little while.I'm also scared I will be on it for the rest of my life and I want to eventually have kids and all that.
Also is it better to take it in the morning or evening
What about the side effects do they go away with time and wth the body adjusting to the medication.
Please give me some feedback
