Thanks for everyone's posts! I have been through so many meds (Prozac, Xanax, Serzone, Geodon, Paxil, Wellbutrin) with no success. Some of the meds brought about severe s/e (the Serzone required an ER visit and caused irregular heartbeat) while some were not as bad. The Geodon caused terrible heartburn and now I have been diagnosed with GURD. I am not sure if the Geodon triggered the GURD or if I had the heartburn because of the undiagnosed GURD. The Prozac made my symptoms become worse instead of better.
I had never tried Celexa, but my doc is a big fan of it. He had originally planned to prescribe Zoloft since my mom does well on it. Then he remembered he had gotten new samples of Lexapro and told me I could benefit. So now I am on Lexapro! I am just trying to find something, ANYTHING that works for me. I'm only 18 and I have been looking for the right med for 6 years. Prozac was the first I tried and it was awful.
In any case, I'm very happy I found this website (I was searching for more info on Lexapro) and I will continue to post and check back! Thanks everyone!
