really struggling here with lexapro!!

Posted by slippinaway on January 31, 2004, at 18:28:16

i really could use some advice from any current or former lexapro users. i am currently taking 10 mg. of lex for ocd/depression/anxiety. i took it for the first time for 2 weeks at christmas time and stopped due to feeling very disassociated and
aggitated and much more anxious than i was even before starting it. i was switched back to paxil which i was on for 5 years before changing to lex and i still felt bad. now i was put back on lexapro and it's only been a week and i am so nervous and anxious and unstable and here is the latest side effect,my eyes are burning and bloodshot and watery and i've developed a twitch in my right eye. i feel way worse than when i felt the depression coming on strong at christmas time.
so what i'm wondering is should i stick with this lexapro while miserable...or does it sound like it isn't for me?? i know 2 weeks isn't very long for a decision but the paxil and prozac always seemed to work rather quick and i never had bad se's other than orgasm difficulty.
any replies would be greatly appreciated....thanx
