I started this Combo recently and just about at the end of my rope. A little history. When I first when on a combo of Topomax and Effexor a couple of years ago is was wonderful for a few months. Appetite was way down and I was upbeat, socialized, dressed better, although I was somewhat weaker and had insomnia. Than came the poop out, upping the dosage, and well, things were never the same. Changed meds, had some temp success with other stuff, then poop out, etc.

Fast forward. Now on 20 mg of Lexapro and 150mg of Tompomax. Added the Topomax 'cause of the weight gain recently from excercise burn out. I titrated at 50mg per week. I'm dumb as a lamp post. Used to be able to do the NY Times crosswork puzzle at least on Mons and Tues now I look at it and go Duh and can only get a few things. Sleep 10 hours a night and could go longer. Try to get for walk most days for daylight, used to run but burnout a few weeks ago. (Cold as the North Pole right here now which doesn't help for outside light.) Crave sweets all the time and just want to eat cookies and donuts all day and do alot of the time. Drink sometimes to excess. Cry a lot. Get to the gym sometimes but normal workout is a chore and much harder than used to be. EVERYTHING that use to be easy is a CHORE. Think about how much I wish I were dead. Pray every night that I will die in my sleep or I will be killed driving or something.

PDoc just keep telling me how wonderful Lexapro is. I think it sucks. What should I do???
