yeah I agree with Link.
I was on Celexa (Lexapro's sister) for a year and a half - it was only when I stopped it I felt my normal self again.
I was the same as you - I was tired all the time on it, I was really apathetic and I couldn't concentrate or really *do* anything, other than sleep and eat and do a boring admin job. But that was it. But I had no motivation to change anything either. It got to the point where I was sleeping all the time - and I googled some side effects, and here we are today.
I remember when I stopped it, I was like 'wow, its 9.30pm and I'm not sleeping - this is great!!'
I think you really are just going back to how you were before the Lex. Or how you are when you're not on antidepressants.
