Well, I took my first dose of Lexparo lastnight before bed. It made me tired actually. I wasn't tired before I took it, and within like 25 or 30 minutes, I was beat. So, I went to bed. I was asleep by like midnight. I was up at 6 a.m. I was actually having a panic attack. I was out of the borrowed Xanax I had, and had nothing to help me, except myself. So, I did some breathing exercises, and tried to work myself out of the attack. It lasted almost an hour. I thought I can't wake up like this all the time, and I sure can't feel like this all the time.
So, when the doctors office opened, I called, and now he called in a prescription for Xanax to take as needed along with the Lexparo. I can't pick that up til like 4:30 p.m. though and I am pretty anxious...Not sure why either. Just uptight today. Not feeling great. I was on a high yesterday, after the appointment of course, and now, I am back to my low. I feel like garbage, and my anxiety is back up.
I know I have only been on the Lexparo for one day, but so far, I am hating how it is making me feel. It isn't a good feeling. I have been told to hang in there though. Again, anyone with any experience on Lexparo, let me know what happened with you. I KNOW all people react differently from eachother, but I am just curious what others have gone through.
So, all in all, so far, day one is not great. Hopefully once I get a Xanax in me, I will feel somewhat better.
Thanks all for listening!
