It has been a little over a month on Lex for me with symptoms that seem to get a little worse than when taking Paxil. However I have been under a lot more stress for the past 3 weeks. (landlord wants me to move so he can sell the place and I finally HAVE to clean the pig stie in which I have let it become.) Who knows, maybe I would be feeling much worse if not on Lex. I am going to give it a while longer. I can get up and go to work OK but as soon as I get home I want to go to bed and sleep. I have zero motivation and zero short term memory. Lack of motivation and putting it off 'till tomorrow are my biggest items to beat myself up with.
Hang in there, if it is any consilation, there are probably people a lot worse off than you and me and they are still coping. There is still hope.
