Thumbs down Antidepressants and hypo!!!

My FNP gave me some Lexapro. I couldn't take it because it made me very drowsy. Has anyone had this problem?

i've never taken lexapro, but an AD named remeron ( ) made me sleep all day -- and i mean all ... and didn't cure my depression, b/c (who knew?) ADs don't work unless your thyroid functions!! i'm now on manerix (not available in the states), and it sorta-kinda works ...

Boy do I know what you mean by sleeping all day. That is what I wanted to do. I also take ulltram pain pills for my headaches. They really relax me. Gee! I sound like a drug addict! I promise I'm not.

Thank you for your nice reply!!!
