thanks, panda. my symptoms are (which can be mild, moderate or severe): irritability, sadness, reflect on past hurts too much, impatience, lack of energy, hopelessness, no motivation, lost interest in sex, negative outlook. most people i know think im a good person so i can "control" the above symptoms enough to appear "normal" but that might be making the symptoms even worse due to supression. with the lexapro, the sadness was totally gone and all the other symp. at first, but gradually they started coming back (except the sadness and hopelessness...i do have to acknowlege that being a single parent of two teenagers and working 9 hrs a day with mentally challenged (mostly retarded) kids certainly adds to my stress level!!! - although i love them all to pieces. my therapist suggested perhaps i have a mood disorder and i have a good psychiatrist but she's reluctant to switch meds, she thinks i should up the dose of lexapro (from 10mg to 20 eventually). i do realize a pill will not cure everything. it takes choosing to get better, eat better, exercise, talk therapy, learning to deal with stress better, etc. thanks again!!
