I've been on Lexapro for almost two weeks and I've noticed a big difference already.
I actually smiled and joked while getting ready for work this morning. I don't know- I feel like a weight has been lifted.
I own a business and lost a "renter" Wednesday. One that pays me 600.00 a month.
Normally that would have sent me into a major tail spin. Crying and unable to cope.
Now I feel like it is what it is..I'll find someone else or figure out a way to deal with it. It's not the end of the world. I don't need to medicate myself to sleep so I don't obsess over it and my husband isn't suffering for it.
I'll be honest- the first week I felt horrible. I ached all over and felt a little more anxious than usual but that passed..and I'm starting to feel like the old me.
Good luck with whatever you decide to do...
