| | New Lexapro prescription
Hello. I recently began taking Lexapro 5 mg for my mood swings related to menopause. It has really made a difference for me. My mood stabilized, and I am able to focus on my own business.
I was losing sleep before taking the Lexapro, but since beginning the low dose, I sleep really well, and wake up without being grouchy.
I don't think I need a stronger dose. I was surprised to read about others who are taking quite larger doses.
My husband asked me to please consult my family doctor one weekend after I had a terrible mood swing that lasted about 3 days. I cried in the Dr.'s office, saying, "I have the most wonderful husband in the world, and he still loves me after the weekend." I was so glad I sought help, and was able to receive it in the form a small white pill!
I think it's great when we know to ask for help. There's nothing to be ashamed of when asking for help. My husband and I are so happy I did!
