that is an antidepressant for you. those little happy pills can really have a kind of drug like effect on you. they can bring on spells of crying without reason, feeling suicidal when you normally wouldn't. make you feel just utterly crazy. your mind can really become confused. they can take you into a place you've never been before. i am not one that really thinks alot of antidepressants. i think it's more important that you work with yourself to make changes than rely on that pill. i have been on so many of them, I know what that is like. lexapro is the only one after 15 years of being medicated with this stuff, I can say truely is an awesome antidepressant. sometime's what your taking just might not be the one for you. you can gradually decrease the dosage until you tame yourself off the med. Your doctor could instruct you on how. I don't know how your doc is, but if I didn't want to take a medication, he by never means would ever make me.
I am stopping ambien, and I thought that was one medication I would never be able to get off of, I have a brain addiction to that med. I'm not taking Lexapro anymore. I want to work on my mood changes without an antidepressant, and through therapy. I quit my bladder medication, it has no change in effects with how it feels, so what's the point, lost my urologist anyways. My plaquenil is only half the dosage now, I see a little change, but not enough to risk eye blindness from it. I really do feel better taking less medications.
this one doctor on the radio said unless you have a broken bone, avoid doctors, lol, all they want to do is medicate you, and it isn't healthy. idk, I would die before I could do that, but that's just me.
