Hi there, I know nothing about the 2 meds you talk about. No one can tell you what will happen when you take any med. You are different from me and so on. I could not take paxil and zoloft. I had a hard time with lexapro at the begining and that was 5mg. My doc said stop taking it but I was desperate. On my own I cut that sucker to about 2mg and this helped ease my mind and side effects. The only thing I could say is cut that med to 1mg if you have to and see what happens. If that works ok after a few days go up to 2mg and so forth. TAKE CARE!!!
