Re: Provigil and Lexapro

Hi Lynne,
I've been on Lexapro for 5 weeks now at 10mg. I haven't really felt any effects yet but I wanted to wait about 9-10 weeks before I ask to increase the dose because I've read on here that it sometimes takes that long to feel the full effects. When I told my pdoc about the sleepiness he wanted to take me right off and put me on Effexor but after reading people's experiences here, I decided to stick it out on the Lexapro and try it with the Provigil at 100mg. For me, it was a lifesaver as I'm not obsessing all day about when I can take a nap. I am really tired in the morning still but it goes away once I'm up and moving after about an hour. Also, I switched to taking the Lexapro at night and I think that helped too. If I don't feel the good effects of the Lexapro I'll ask for a dose increase and probably a dose increase in the Provigil too.
If the Lexapro is working for you, maybe you could try the Provigil before switching to the Wellbutrin. Good luck and feel free to write if you have any further questions - I read a lot here before I went to my pdoc and it really helped to feel informed. He was even happy with me coming up with the Provigil idea and said he wouldn't have thought about it and was glad I did.
Take care,
