> > Thanks for the encouragement, but how exactly did you know that the Lex had finally kicked in? How did it make you feel different? I dont really know what to expect. The only thing I have noticed so far is that this month, the PMS that I usually get really bad, was better. Two weeks ago my doc increased my dosage to 10mg, I felt like I had the flu for two weeks now, but I have noticed that other people have experienced this s/e. I'm finally starting to feel better, good thing i was off work for the holidays, I couldnt imagine having to go to work in my condition. I slept away most of my two week vacation. I cant wait for this to get better. thanks : )

> As to how do you knowit's working........I kept waiting for something *BIG* to happen that I would wake up and BE DIFFERENT. Nothing....then week 9 came and I thought this is NOT working......and I was sitting on the couch w/hubby watching TV and I found myself laughing and feeling GOOD, I mean really good, and that was IT!!! It's really helped a lot, but its not a *miracle* drug, I still have up days and down days, the downs are just not so terrible and I can get through them. The Lex kind of *evens* things out for me. PMS is almost non-existent!

Thanks! I hope it works for me too. I've been waiting for something *big* to happen too, in fact my friend just asked me how "it" was working and I didnt know how to answer her. I havent really noticed a big change. Yesterday I had a really bad day, I was so depressed it wasnt even funny. I havent felt like that in a while, but was kind of disappointed to even have a day like that, made me wonder if this (the depression) will ever go away completely. I've read how some people have increased their dosage, I wonder if that is by doctors orders or do they take it upon themself to up the dosage? I go back for my 6 week check up soon, I guess I will let him evaluate the situation. Today is a good day, I'm actually being productive at work for the first time in a while, even before my vacation I wasnt this interested in actually doing my job. Thanks for the input and as Kathrynlex put it, it really is nice to know there are other people out there who are experiencing the same things. V
