I've been experiencing a bunch of health issues for the last few months and it's taking a toll on me. I saw a neuro yesterday for numbness on my right side and he seemed very intent on my being depressed. I didn't think I was, but I can see how I've become anxious about my health and it has affected me. So he gave me Lexapro to see if it would help. Before I start taking it, I have some questions (some of my health issues stem from too many of the wrong meds!)
How long before you feel the benefits of lexapro?
Does it upset your stomach? (or cause reflux)
When you stop taking it, do you feel worse than before? (I'm concerned that it'll mess with my system making less seratonin than before)
I felt better from the first dose, that's because it calms down anxiety as well. It doesn't upset your stomach or acid reflux, unless your so inflammed that anything you swallow hurts. No, never had withdrawal and felt worse when I stopped taking it.
