Weird thing (or not so weird??) I was doing very well on Lexapro and Klonopin, then my clothes started not to fit, I got on the scale and cried...I have never been so heavy in my life! I work very hard to eat healthy and exercise and can only attribute this to the Lexapro.
So I stopped cold turkey. Basically I had a nagging headache for a bit then a rageing migraine (which I have not had since I have been on anti-depressants) for 5 days! Went to a Neurologist and they scanned my brain and all is well, probably just comming off the medication.
Was doing just fine, then this waking up at 4am starts! Thats always how things get aggrivated with me! I wake up too early, feel like I am sick, am in a horrible mood. I was coping very well until Sat when I suppose a horrible panic attack happened. I was at work, on Saturdays I am in the building alone. I just felt this overwhelming fear, like I had to run away or pull my hair out or something, I felt crazy. I wanted to call my mother and just have her stay on the phone with me but I knew this would scare her to death, I was afraid to be alone, I thought I might do harm to myself, I had horrible thoughts in my head. I think this was close to true "psycosis". I had to run out to my car and take some Klonopin, then I was so greatful I had plans with friends because I was terrified to be by myself. :(
So, long story short, back on the Lexapro, at half the dose, and watching everything that goes into my mouth. I think I scared myself, I can't go back to ever feeling like that again.
Just sharing, thanks for listening:)
