mikeys ~ you sound very similar to me ~ I have depression/anxiety also ~ I have been taking Lexapro for about 3 years, just tried going off it to hopefully lose weight, but it felt awful off the Lex so just started taking again 2 days ago and feel much better already ~ I wanted to try phentermine but my doctor said I couldnt take Lexapro and phentermine at the same time (causes bad reactions) so I tried going off the Lexapro and started taking phentermine, the phen didnt seem to help much anyway ~ so I'm going to have to try to lose the weight while on Lexapro ~ I've been thinking about gastric bypass, I talked to my doctor about it when I was in talking about the phentermine ~ I'd really like to do it, but it kind of scares me and seems really drastic, I'd really rather try to lose the weight with out having to do the surgery but its starting to feel like I've tried everything and just feel like I'm starving all the time and dont have the will power to not eat, so I'm still considering it ~ I wonder how my insurance is with covering it or not ~ did you just call to find out if your insurance covered it?
