Hi, my husband has been diagnosed with depression and anxiety. He has been put on 20mg Escitalopram, and was started on 5mg of Diazapam 4 times a day. This has now been reduced to 2.5mg, 4 times a day, because he is so tired and his legs and arms feel so weak and tired. He is still sleeping on and off all day, and is quite unsteady on his feet. Whenhe walks he has to take very small steps, instead of striding out as he used to. He is 75 years old. Theyre pretty sure its the medication causing this, but I would be pleased to have any re-assurance from anyone. Thanks
Hi Jonnstar. Yes he is on 20mg of Escitolapram (Cipralex) a day. His anxiety is a lot better, but he has fallen over twice. He says he cant remember what happened. He is under the mental health team,and they are very good, but im not seeing them again until Monday. he seemed to be getting on so good and hes really fed up now.
