does anyone know if lexapro needs to be adjusted with the changing seasons?  i seem to feel a little worse than usual and last time this happened was when it went from warm to cold and they increased my dose and it seemed to help.  does it need to be increased again or decreased?  any advice would be great thanks.

Hey Lusk, I wish I could help you out on this but I can't give you any clear answers as far as increase or not. The only thing I can tell you is my experience w/Lexapro. After being placed on it several months ago, I began to feel better - for awhile. It never fully made my depression go away, but it did make some what of a difference. After several months, I slipped into a dark depression. I continued the meds hoping it would soon cease the darkness of depression. Unfortunately it didn't. I had no choice but to go back to the doctor. I was placed on Effexor XR and i'm glad. This took place only a few weeks ago and the depth of my depression is lifting all the time.

I wish I could give you a more concrete answer as to your question. Maybe talking to your dr. about your concern is your best bet??? Best of luck on your finding your answer. Keep us posted.

Hi Lusk
I have not heard of the meds being adjusted like really need to talk to your doctor about it and see what they can do.
I would worry about decreasing the meds after taking a higher dosage for so long...
