Lexapro experiment

Posted by sabre on October 23, 2004, at 17:27:07

Hi
After going off Moclobemide about two weeks ago, I have been experiencing depression even though this stuff is supposed to be out of your system in two days.

I had been taking Lexapro before this and found that 2.5mg made me feel I suppose what you would call hypomanic (ran 2hrs and then did 8hrs of painting/weeding on this dose first up.

I felt like I wanted to be social on this dose but was also hit by feelings of panic (more a constant background effect than full blown attacks.

After reading that Prozac could be started at 1/8 the therapeutic dose for people with panic-anxiety I put a Lex tablet in a clear plastic bottle of water. I then divided the amount into 5 by scratching the side of the bottle.

Essentially I have been taking 2mg per day for the past three days and I am finding it much better. I have more energy but not to the extent of mania and I feel more neutral rather than depressed which is okay.

I will test this dosage tomorrow when I go to work. If I can survive a day without a beta blocker perhaps it will be a partial solution.

The other thing I would like to do is get some Reboxetine and experiment with adding this pure NARI to Lexapro using small and varying doses.

I don't suppose if this was too successful that drug companies would be interested. Imagine if you got by on a pill or two a week. Wouldn't be good for business. I suppose they could repackage and rename it ...Serenity of something for all the panickers.
