> I have been on Lex for about two months now. started at 5, then 10. at 10 i hit a great point for about a week, then dropped into the pits of hell. doc said it was normal while playing with the dosage for this to happen. been at 20 for about 3 weeks. have been feeling good (not opptomistic, just not as pessemistic) for going on 7 days.

> > I never had the total exhaustion most of you speak of on Lex, but I did have worse depression before it got better. I wasn't ready to switch again so I gave it more time, and it worked! I am as amazed as anyone cause I was feeling hopeless. My doctor didn't think the chances of it working for me after 2 months was a possibility, but it did. SO, if you can stick with it...give it longer than usual to determine if it works.

I too did not experience any benefit from Lex until week 9. Had a lot of bad side effects in the begining and deep depression around weeks 4-5. Stick with it and give Lex a chance to work for you if you are just starting and want to give up.
