After a week on Lexapro i am returning to Zoloft tomorrow or next day.
Did reduce the Lexapro to 1/2 dose after the second day's not-so-pleasant differences (Adderall spaciness and 'stuck in a cul-de-sac thinking', physical heaviness, emotional darkness).
Not much more different about following days except the Lex + Adderall SEs returned (ear ringing, itchiness that when scratched produces hive-like bumps)...basically reaffirmed my reason for switching from Lexapro in the first place (Doh!).
All in all, didn't achieve anything that i would by any means call added benefit, Ame Sans Vie, although the second night's mild hallucinogenic patterns in my carpet and wall were mildly amusing...

My PhDoc told me that 'seratonin syndrome' is actually rather uncommon. He asked me how long ago i'd run out of the Zoloft, and about flu-like symptoms, temperature and heart palps, but not about the things i thought described 'seratonin syndrome' effects. Perhaps i got that wrong, will have to scout the definition again. Quick and easy definition, anyone? I did MILDLY experience what i assumed was seratonin dump visuals similar to mdma or lsd, but no "feel good" effects. But i'm no doc.

Anyway, glad to have my pdoc and zoloft back in my life. Not much else i can offer about this alternating thing. Thanx for the answers, LarryH & SusanStJ~ :) Anything i might need to know before picking up my Zoloft and resuming at 100mgs? My pdoc didn't mention anything, but i didn't ask. We discussed my heavy darkness in that $pendy 45min session. ;)
