In reply to Pls. POST Here if you take 5mg LEXAPRO or less, posted by Keko on October 27, 2004, at 17:21:48
I'm with you. If I take more than 5 mg., I don't get agitated, but just get flat and anhedonic, and also have very annoying sexual s/e's. I'm currently taking 5 mg. of Lexapro, and splitting a 75 mg. tablet of Wellbutrin. These low doses seem to work a lot better than the higher ones- but perhaps because therapy has helped lighten the depression quite a bit- although not entirely. Taking this combination, I hope I'm normalizing my serotonin, nor-epinephrine and dopamine a bit. I would be glad to go to 2.5 mg. of Lexapro!
