Re: Depression/Anxiety Alternative to Lexapro?
Geez, you poor thing. You might want to talk to a pharmacist - they're supposed to know which drugs have bad interactions. Sometimes (shh!) they know more than doctors. I'm sorry you can't see a regular, decent psychiatrist.
I take Lexapro and Klonipin (anti-anxiety). If I miss a day, I feel it. However, it's not enough to beat the depression completely, so I supplement with fish oil and flaxseed oil capsules, which are VERY calming (esp. fish oil) and a vitamin supplement called Body Balance. *edited*. It's mostly sea vegetables and very potent in vitamins and minerals. If you can't afford this or find it, you might buy a "green" supplement of some kind and try it - something from a health store that includes lots of green foods in it.
For you, the Prozac and the fish oil together might do the trick.
