> Thanks for your inputs, will try to take 5 mg of it in the evening or at night time.

> Other SE than tiredness is nausea and some anxiety attacks (never had those before ever) usually go away in 30 minutes or so. I am on 12,5 mg Lexapro now.
> I am on week 23 w. Remeron and about to enter week 6 on Lexapro

I doubt it is "pooping" after just 6 months -- contrary to some reports, Remeron in general use more often than not has increased fatigue and weight gain as the dosage goes up. Serotonergic activity may increase though as well, possibly. It may or may not be the agent for you, but it sounds like your doctor wants to continue on it from his/her observations. It is an excellent drug in its own class for some depressive disorders that don't fit other models. It just has some side effects that some can't tolerate.

Nausea is rather common with adjusting to Lexapro or any SSRI for that matter, at least when I tried it.

-- best wishes
