    Escitalopram doesn't work, what's next?


    Three month ago I was diagnosed with depression.

    My therapist prescribed me Escitalopram (Lexapro, Cipralex). Start with 5 mg then move to 10 mg. First few weeks on Escitalopram were very difficult and the stuff didn't get better. I had difficulty focusing, sleepiness, headache. The therapist told to take Escitalopram in the evening to prevent sleepiness during daytime. It helped partially.

    Then he told me to move to 15 mg and I had a difficult period to get used to 15 mg. Now I am almost three month in depression, Escitalopram doesn't work, I have a problem in my university because I didn't complete the required coursework.

    What else can I do to help myself?
