Hi Mel,

I'm assuming that you started out at 5 mgs, is that right? I started out at 10 mgs and for me the second week was the worst. A lot of people seem to hit a rough spot during week 2...although, I can't help but wonder why you didn't experience any difficulties during your second week at 5 mgs and you're having trouble now. Maybe there simply wasn't enough Lexapro in your system for you to feel any side effects. Just a thought.

I suggest trying to wait it out another week. See if your mood doesn't improve. I'm willing to bet that it will. When I increased to 15 mgs I felt a little out of it for about 2 weeks. Yesterday I increased to 20 mgs and am feeling much more depressed than usual. I hate it...but the good news is that it gets better. In a week or so you and I will both be feeling much better than we do now. Hang in there, even if you do go sit in a corner and cry - know that you're not alone.
