Experience moving from Prozac to Lexipro?

Posted by tiredman on October 20, 2003, at 10:27:37

I took Prozac for ten years (where I probably was not depressed for nine of those ten years). It just never occurred to my pdoc to take me off of it. I stopped taking Prozac about a year ago.

A recent tragedy has got me torn. I can't tell if I am just grief stricken or depressed. My pdoc said to wait (before trying an anti-depressant). It's been about 4 weeks now and I'm starting to lean toward depression.

She suggested that I try Lexipro (as opposed to Wellbutron, which I wanted to try) because of it's similarity to Prozac (which we know is agreeable with my system). I don't want to go back on Prozac. I had all the sexual side effects while on Prozac plus an odd personality change which I would rather not experience again.

Have you moved from Prozac to lexipro? What were your experiences?
