First real dose of SSRI

Posted by mattye on April 9, 2007, at 0:57:22

I've been on Serzone
and Remeron
and Wellbutrin
and Klonopin

None of these changed me as much as the Lexapro has recently. It has been a week since my new doc decided how I would react to an increase on my Lexapro

I was managing well on 20 mgs... we agreed to go to 30, despite the sexual side effects.

Now after a week at 30 mgs, I really understand the true nature of the SSRI's.

I feel like a zombie. Yes, my anxiety and obsessiveness is gone . . . but everything else feels like a dream. I don't feel like I can connect with my significant other. He seems like just this other person who lives with me... not to mention my sex drive is now totally gone.

I feel tired, lazy, unmotivated. I don't feel like socializing. Other people seem boring. I don't feel sad and anxious . . . just kind of numb. Devoid of emotional excitement.

Yeah . . . I think I'm going back down to 20, and when I feel I can, I'm taking to 15. I can do it. I am afraid of what this stuff is doing to my brain long term.
