Re: Could I be misdiagnosed?
I'm on Celexa (very close to Lexapro), and was also prescribed generic Klonopin for insomnia at night.
I take .5 mg. and it helps a lot.
It's basically for anxiety, also....like a long-acting xanax, really---or so I've been told.
Maybe you should add an anti-anxiety med to the mix, while you're still getting somewhat adjusted to the Lexapro. Some doctors balk at anti-anxiety pills, but, I just went through a life-threatening disease (I'm fine now, thank God) and I literally HAD to have something to help me thorough.
Of course, your doctor will know if it's appropriate for you, or not.
The best of luck to you.
P.S. It's always a good idea to get a 2nd opinion, and of course it never hurts.
If it would make you feel more comfortable, you should probably do it.
