I'm the cancer patients but Unfortunately, my husband ist no coping very well. He has gone into a depression, and has developed a cancer phobia in himself. He is scared that if anything happens him, he won't be able to take care of me later. As we are retired we spend a lot of time alone together...so things are difficult. He is going for councelling to-morrow. (he needs to be able to talk out his fears etc without upsetting anyone) I wonder would Lexapro give his tired mind the lift it needs. His doctor is hopeless. Imagine he went to a urulogist and the consultant said "tell your doctor you need to see a counseller". the doc he has been attending regularly for years just said he was depressed but did nothing more above it. Lexapro!!!!
