Re: Lexapro and weird feelings/hallucinations
Gosh, I feel so badly for you and what sounds like a very frightening experience. I can almost guarantee that what you were experiencing was due to your medication - although you may not get a lot of support for this truth from your doctor. If I were you, I would stop taking this medication by weaning from it slowly, slowly..... because too fast can cause bad side effects. And then, I would never ever touch a medication that messes with your brain chemicals again!! Antidepressants are, in my well-formed opinion, dangerous. Please know that there are some very powerful alternative ways of correcting your brain chemistry and essentially healing any and all neuro-chemical and hormonal imbalances in the body --- no matter how bad your problem may be.
check out these two books on and think about buying them right away:
"The Mood Cure" by Julia Ross
"Depression free naturally"
by Joan Mathews Larson
Also, if you are having problems weaning off your medication, I can tell you about some excellent treatments that will help you get off the medication safely. These are special treatments that involve a specific nutritional protocol. I would be glad to help you any way I can. Nobody should have to suffer with what just happened to you and I am so sorry this did happen to you. I also am the mother of a two year old daughter! Anyway, one of my passions is with alternative medicine and nutrition and holistic health and healing.... and I want to tell you that there are some amazing modalities out there that can help you tremendously. Let me know what you wish to do about this. I hope I can be of help.
