That's an interesting observation - "tried napping today, but no success." I feel somewhat similar.

I'm on Lexapro (Day 4) and I was trying to think of a way to describe how I'm feeling to my husband and the best I can come up with is "immobilized."

I don't want to expend a lot of energy going anywhere - or doing anything because I feel like I MIGHT tired, but I'm still not tired or sleepy enough to even commit to a nap.

I'm on Adderall, and it feels as though I've hit a speed bump - but not in a bad way.

I'm likening this feeling to one of those movie scenes where the character is on some cheesy moving sidewalk but you can't see the actual movement - and it ends up looking like they're just gliding across the set (I think Mike Myers did this in some movie - I wish I could describe it better and I'm hoping this isn't the prelude to some "Night of the Walking Catatonic" stage in my life! ).

Plus, I notice that I've been feeling particularly verbose (as evidenced above - LOL) and I'm definitely feeling less irritable (verbose AND irritable could be detrimental to anyone in the immediate vicinity).

Oh yeah, and time feels a bit suspended. Example, I'll look at the clock and think "how in the world did it get to be 6:30?"

Sorry to go into such agonizing detail!

Usually I don't have any SSRI or anti-depressant side effects so I'm still debating if what I'm feeling are side effects - or just me looking for an excuse to be a lazy *ss for a few days.

> I am very sensitive to ssi's and just started with Lexapro. Only problem so far is that I can't quit yawning, and tried napping today, but no success, anyone with similar problem??
