Re: New Lexapro prescription

Hi All,

glad to hear good things about Lexapro. I am currently taking Wellbutrin for depression. Anxiety has popped up in the last several months so my shrink gave me ativan for anxiety. I know I can only take ativan for a short while. Dr. wants to add another AD to the mix, I think she is leaning towards Cymbalta, but I gained 60lbs on Effexor & Cymbalta is in the same class as Effexor. Also, I perimenopausal, age 51, and with that comes a long list of symptoms. Lexapro seems to be helping those at premenopause, but I am on the fence as to which drug to add.........lexapro or cymbalta. I lost the effexor weight and stayed same with wellbutrin........I'd like to keep it that way. Need something to help with depression, anxiety, perimenopause.......suggestions?
