Quite a few years ago I was diagnosed with "chemical" depression by a Neurologist and placed on Paxil. Then about six years ago I was diagnosed by a Sleep Specialist with Narcolepsy. (I have excessive daytime sleepiness, the hallucinations and occasional bouts of cataplexy along with frequent mood swings and can be VERY EMOTIONAL.) I was put on Ritalin and taken off of Paxil. Recently I was rediagnosed with Depression and Narcolepsy and am now taking Ritalin SR and Lexapro. Other than the intial dizzy spells from beginning Lexapro (about 2 weeks ago) it doesn't seem to be too bad. Has anyone else used both of these drugs at the same time? What has been your experience?
