I've posted a few times before, all about the same problem. I'm on my fourth
month of taking lexapro. It's been torture. I follow a pattern. I increase the
dose. Suffer the side effects for a week. Feel better for a week or so. Then it
stops working. I then increase the dose and the pattern repeats. I've done this
going from 2.5->5.0->7.5->10.0->15->20->25 (every time suffering a week of side
effects). It also feels like when it does poop out, I feel worse then I did in
the first place.

I just started 25mg. My pdoc has said that if this doesn't work then we will
have to start experimenting with other drugs. I already take trazadone and
perphenazine to sleep.

She says I am taking the largest dose of Lexapro of all her patients. Are any of
you taking over 25 mgs? I am getting scared.
