I am so glad I found this thread. My 18 yr old daughter has been diagnosed with depression for only about 4 months. She is taking 30 mg of lexapro. Iti is helping her so much. You dont even know she is depressed anymore. She so much better.
Recently just within the last two weeks she also has been getting shocks in her system. Scares me and her. Im glad to see she is not the only one. I took her to the doctor about it. He says he doesnt know why this is happening, he doesnt think its the medicine doing that to her. But it gets much worse when she forgets to take her dose. He wants to give her depakote 250mg. He thinks it is bi polar. so thats what he wants to treat. Only problem is she doesnt have any symptoms of bi polar. Only the shocks. He does admit he is guessing, and thats the first place he wants to start. What do you all think. I think Its just the meds, and nothing else. Any opinions would be appreciated. I am hesitant on filling the depakote prescription, as I dont think its the problem. Help
