I am a first time poster on here.
I have been diagnosed with anxiety as well as intrusive thoughts (OCD)
I have always had anxiety and intrusive thoughts but have just gotten to the point that I am so frustrated and over it that its ruining my life.... :(
I absolutely HATED the idea of medication but thought i have tried everything else, why not give this a go.
I eat fairly healthy, no drugs, don't drink and exercise every day... yet this still happens to me.
I have an amazing fabulous husband and just got married 7 months ago. Also have a very supportive family, so no issues there..
My psych started me on 2.5mg lexapro for the first week and then 5mg lexapro after the first week...
I am currently just taken my first 5mg dose.
I am freaking out.
I had a few headaches and so tired on the first few days, but then last night slept badly... kept tossing and turning.
And i feel like my anxiety has gotten worse recently :( Has anyone else experienced this?
I am absolutely determined to keep on this as i am praying for a miracle and to be back to my old self.
Would love to hear some experiences on how you went on medication.
Wishing you all a great day :)
