Discussions that mention lexapro

Diet & Nutrition board


hey whats up all.. i just got back from the doc, well that was tuesday.. but you know what i mean...

alright, it was just a family doctor, and he doesn't normally prescribe xanax.... as you know from my previous posts, i felt this would benefit me most, as i have tried a couple different ssris....

my mom and i went, and she explained to, so he did end up giving me a 10 day supply, more or less to take if an attack comes, not to take daily... 20 total pills.... i'm thinking about going to a psychi, to get what this doc doesn't prescribe... he listened, but not really to my satisfaction.......

of course he threw another anti-dep. my way that he had samples of, lexapro... ( i don't reallyw ant to hear the negatives of this) b/c that always makes me more worried.... i think i'm gonna try it..... so only good replies about this, no negatives please, you know why i wouldn't wanna hear the bad replies.. haha

onto my concerns, i believe i want/need to go to a psychi, who is specialized and who can listen fully..... and i believe that if i got a prescription of say 10 xanax every month, that i could take if an attack came, i would be so much more secure... knowing i had something, would give me the comfort of leaving and doing things i noramlly do.. just one w/ refills, that i knew i could get the next month if needed, does that make sense to any of you, i wouldn't take everyday, just for attacks....

and also, it says not to drink grape juice... well, i had sparkling grape juice for thanksgiving, and was planning on taking a xanax tomrorow evening and doing something that usually makes me nervous, while i'm home w/ family (in college, away from home) as i would feel more comfortable taking it here, w/ family, as opposed to taking alone at college....
should i wait until saturday since i drank grape juice tonite, i don't really understand why you can't take it w/ it??

sorry for long post, any help appreciated
