Could be a reaction to Lexpro. You really can't overdose on Xanax. Take another one and see what happens. Don't make a habit of it as you don't want to up your addiction to Xanax, but there really have been no reported deaths related to Xanax overdose.
Took my 2 mg of Xanax last night at 10 pm and it flattened me like a pancake like it ususally did in the past. I feel 1000% better today (still stressed but better).
I did not take my second pill of a Lexapro because of all the side effects of the pills. My doctor poo poos all the side effects.
Yeah, easy to "poo poo" the side effects since he's not the one who is having them....I'd "dump" him.
Psychoactive drugs are serious business, beyond simple doody; not only to mention the side effects, but the flat-out uncertain way they will effect people and the ill effects on the body over time.
If they can't test, measure or define what is normal levels of serotoinin and/or other neurotransmitter levels in the living, human brain of each patient, then they can't be sure of any such deficiencies. It is not the same as the easy, convienient comparison they give about diabetes, because medical science can tell you what is normal blood sugar levels, they have a means to measure it and they can biologically test you for it.
The whole thing is based on theories developed from LSD experiments of the 60,s, with the discovery of a happiness side effect. Poop for sure.
My two fears with Lexapro are (in order) insomnia and weight gain.
Well, I slept good again last night. Fell asleep without meds watching a movie with my wife and that kind of freaked me out since my doc insists I have squeaky clean sleep hygene. This morning I'm 'ok' but that might be because the Xanxax is still keeping me calm and I've had like 15 hours sleep the last two nights.
The big test will be during the week. I have to go to a job that's pure hell because I'm not supposed to know that I'm being laid off soon. Oye. But I have to focus on the bright things in my life (there are lots) and rechannel my energies. This may after all be a "good" life experience. But shoot, man, I'm 40! I'm sick of these experiences.
