I have been on Lexapro for about 2 months now. I take 10 mg early every morning...I get up about 5:15 AM. Sometimes in the late afternoon - maybe once a week - I will feel different (not bad, or sad, just a little off) and I will take another 10 mg. But like I said, this is just about once every week or two.
I got off of the Effexor because if I missed even one dose, or even took it a few hours late, I would begin to get the brain shocks and feel dizzy and my vision would have trails. I was very scared about going off of it, but I started the Lexapro and was able to get off the Effexor within two weeks. I had the Wellbutrin to augment the Effexor, so I figured I didn't need it anymore - and I don't.
I am very satisfied with the Lexapro.
