Yes I have.
But I know many on benzo type drugs (ie; xanax, ativan, klonopin) and they don't take the antidepressents and they still feel panicky if they don't have one with them all the time.
I take Lexapro (SSRI/antidepressent) and Ativan, and am now not so dependant on the Ativan. I started out taking 1 mg a day, and today I didn't have to take any.
I think the Lexapro is working. I didn't have too many side effects from it when I started on it.. other than waking up in the morning with my heart racing... which lasted about
a week and subsided.
