> Thanks Mariposa for the words of encouragement. Last night i skipped my dose and took .25 mgs of xanax and got some uninterupted sleep (3-4 hours) then was able to actually GO back to sleep. I think i'll take 1/2 my dose of Lex tonite...and do that until i go to the doc next tuesday. I have read on here that some started off slowly on Lex (2.5 and 5 mgs working up to their optimal dose). I just think starting 10mgs up front whacked me out! I know it's not good to self-medicate but i HAD to sleep at least ONE night!

Yes, I think starting at 10mg might be part of the problem, I started at 5mg, and in retrospect, if I knew then what I know now, I probably would have started at 2.5mg instead. Some people can jump right in and take 10mg, it probably would have killed me since I had such a rough time w/5mg. I would have done exactly as you have, I might even have been scared off totally and decided that such a kick-butt med was not for me.

Best of luck and HANG IN THERE!~~~8|8
