Hi there, I feel your pain and cry because I know how you feel. You can read some of my posts and they are depressing. I had bad experiences with paxil and zoloft. I feel better today after a horrible day yesterday. The doc should have maybe started you at 5mg if you had a bad time with other meds as I did. But if you are not having any bad side effects I guess it does not matter. Do you have anything else such as xanax or klonopin. These help, I take xanax it helps me through bad times and helps me sleep. But you dont want to take a lot. I take under 1mg per day. I wake up in the middle of the night break off a little piece and it helps. Talk to your doc!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have done a lot of searching on lexapro and it can take up to 8 weeks to feel better. I have read many posts on message boards. I have gotten some good results but get so frustrated that it does not happen quicker. I have almost completed my 4th week and you have just started. Hang in there it is tough as hell!!!!!!!!!!!! Your going to have good days and very bad days. I cried all day yesterday and dont really know why. But today I feel better and dont know why. Feel free to email me and we can exchange sob stories. I also check this board all the time for new posts. I have a vette in the garage that I had not driven in 5 months until last week. I fear leaving the house by myself. Only left twice in 5 months. So you are further than I am!!!! Take care and dont give up!!!!!!!!
