Lexapro problems - Can someone chime in?
I am 44 years old and suffer from Dysthymia. My PDOC put me on lexapro 10mg 2.5 months ago. I worked my way up to the full dose over a couple of weeks. The first month went smoothly, and I felt better with the exception of mild tiredness.
Since then I have gone downhill, with the tiredness taking over. I dropped (with Docs approval) back to 5mgs but I cant think straight, my memory is shot. Simple math is a problem for me now, and I just dont feel good.
The only up side is my anger issues are resolved. I am not near as snappy with everyone.
My Doc seems to think I havent triued the lexapro long enough. In my mind, I think its been long enough.
Will you give me your 2 cents on this? I am miserable.
