Glad you checked in. I'm checking in too
I'm now at about week 3 of the Lexapro/Buspar regimen. HUGE difference too. Side effects just about gone (yeah! no more nausea/digestive issues). Appetite is also back. No more sweats or difficulty staying asleep.
I'm noticing that while I may still have some anxiety (MUCH less) I'm better able to focus on what I'm thinking at the time instead of being overwhelmed by the feeling of being anxious.
Now to find a therapist (didn't realize that would be the most difficult part of the process!)
Take care and glad to hear we're both improving! Yeah Lexapro! (if you can get through the first 3 weeks)
