Dear Holly,
I, too am taking Lexapro. I took Zoloft for several years and it started to not work for me anymore. I haven't noticed any obvious side-effects except for sever sleepiness the first few days, but I think I tolerate SSRIs pretty well, anyway. Today, day six, is the first day I've really felt alive again. Not totally great, mind you, but at least I'm beginning to have an interest in what's going on around me again.
It's true about the family member thing...my dad took prosiac before he died (unrelated to his depression) and when my daughter needed an AD a few years ago, she didn't respond well to Zoloft and ended up with Imiprimine, however, her dad had tried zoloft, too, and couldn't tolerate it, so I guess she's much more like his side of the family.
I do feel a little bit of a zingy spaciness that I attribute to not so much the Lexapro, but to stopping the zoloft.
Good luck to you and keep on reading...I'll be here! Mary
