I am very new to all this and know nothing about the other drugs you are taking. But I just posted about this a few days ago (see "Lexapro: Drowsy/Spacey?" above). One member suggested I take the pill in the PM and that's been helping me a lot--I seem to sleep through the fatigue/lack of motivation and wake up feeling pretty good (although it's a little hard to fall asleep so I might try taking the lex in the late afternoon). In a few weeks I may try taking the pill in the morning again, just to see if the sleepiness side effect has worn off.
Good luck. The lexapro has definitely muted my feelings of depression and psychic pain--which is making it a little easier to look at how I might now start to repair my life. Yee Gods!
