I am going into my 5th month of this hell. I know a lot of people have been going through this for years. To me it seems like years. I remember what I used to feel like. I have tried paxil and zoloft and had very bad side effects. The lexapro this is my 4th week. I dont know what to say good or bad. I take it in the morning I am a zombie. I take it at night I dont get tired. Today I am going to try early afternoon. To me it seemed I felt best when I was taking 5mg. I went to 7.5 and was starting to get that tired feeling. My shrink insisted I go to 10mg. and I became a zombie. I just went back to 7.5 and am working on the time. I also wonder if 5mg is enough for me. I dont know and I am getting desperate. I started execising a few days ago and woke up the next day and was so sore and miserable. Today though I wake up and my neck does not hurt for the 1st time in months. I still have sore legs, I get up in the morning and my calf muscles and ankles hurt like hell for a few minutes. They have been like that for months. You see I dont leave the house, so I assume that my muscles have paid the price. I get up and see these depressing posts about lexapro. It makes me worry that this will never work for me. I also have a wife who is trying to quit drinking. She has done good, but when she does fall off the wagon it depresses me. I have a 9 year old daughter who I have raised since she was born for motivation. I have an older daughter who is going to make me a grandpa in october. I am 45 and still should have many good years to go. I have to make this lex work. I cant start anything else and begin again. I had terrible withdrawl from the paxil and zoloft. Brain zaps and everything bad you can imagine. I just hope the 5 or 7.5 or 10mg will work with the right time. I have overcome alot while on the lex. I stayed home by myself for the 1st time last week. I am trying to ignore my aches and pains. I drove my vette for only 2 miles but I left the house. I am trying to overpower my mind and take control of it. It is very hard!!!! I just cant start over!!!!!!!! I am sorry for everyone else who has to suffer. I wish I could give advice, maybe you can pick something out of this mess of mine and use it. GOD BLESS EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!
