Hey Girls,
How are you all? I am doing ok. My boyfriend left today to go home to work for two months and I started my period so I am feeling a touch sad. I am now at 10mg of lexapro and feeling glad about the drop. Its weird, I feel less depressed on 10 than I did on 20, I am sure coming home helpped a lot.
Mystic~ are you not doing well, I hope things get better for you, I know that the 15mg had not kicked in yet, it took me about 2 weeks to see a difference.
Bride~ Hope things are going well with you, my best friend is getting married on the 5th so we are getting crazy trying to get it all together.
It is so fun though, I cannot wait till I get engaged ect.
Anxious Babe~ I am so glad you are here, thanks for such a wonderful contribution.
Mrs.C~ Good to hear that you have been feeling well latley, I started today and made it though PMS pretty well. Any info on the Atkins Diet?
Jlynne~ Hope all is well with you, you sound like your doing well and helping everyone else out!
Simus~ Thanks for the grapefruit warning, I know it is good for dieting so that is important to know its not good for us.
Trucker~ I am glad you are back with us, hope all is going well..how goes the added wellbutrin
LynneDa~ Have you lost anymore weight on 10mg. I am hoping that these 8lbs start getting the hell on off of me..hahaha
Em~ Hope all is going well for you, I dropped down to 10mg at night because 20 seemed to be making me irritable and un-like myself. I feel a lot "cleaner" on 10mg.
Mag- good to know that you and your boyfriend are still doing well, stay away from that weed, it will get ya.
If I left anyone out I am sorry!! Its been a long day.
Love ya
Lexy

zanax is the only one that i was warned about... and most of us aren't on zanax... i was also told if you think it will affect your meds...don't take them together.

Hi Trucker,

I didn't mean to offend you if I did - at least that is the way it sounded in your response with the #1) this is the Lex board...and I know that, I am also on Lex, #2)some of us do take a xanax once in a while when needed and I only mentioned the xanax because that is where I saw the label. #3)I never nor would I ever say anything about your doctor or Dr. Bob not knowing anything. I am only here for the support and help and not to critizice anyone ever!

I was just simply agreeing with Simus about the grapefruit juice label, but I didn't in anyway mean to offend anyone...after all I thought that we are all here to help each other and share our ideas and experiences, so again I am sorry if I came off any other than just agreeing with someone.

anxious babe :(

i don't mean to upset anyone either but i do recomend talking to your doctor, because they know what you are on and if you can use anything
dr-bob said to talk to your psyc doc noit to listen to all the stuff on here.

Anxious Babe,

Sorry I didn't check sooner. I think this one was aimed at me. You didn't do anything wrong, and we are glad to have you here. So please stick with us.


Trucker,

> one this is the lex board,

Lexapro falls within the category of SSRIs, to which the warning pertained.

> two most of us aren't on zanax,

Xanax is commonly used to supplement SSRIs for anxiety symptoms, and several people here are on Xanax.

> three she has been in school longer than any of us

There are some very well-educated people on this board, of which I am one.

> and i am sure she wouldn't steer me wrong...

Even doctors make the occasional mistake or oversight...

> i take welbutrin and lexd and the grapefruit works wonders on weight.. so i don't have to whine about weight gain...

I am glad you found something that works well for weight loss for you, but for you to recommend it to everyone on this board is potentially dangerous.

> my psyc doc goes to studies all the time to stay up to date and are you calling dr-bob stupid or what!!!!

??? No. I never even addressed Dr. Bob in any of these posts. And if I had, I would NEVER have called him anything derogatory. He provides a wonderful service to us all, and I for one am grateful. I simply "cut and past"ed valid medical studies from prestigious medical facilities to help my friends. I have never known Dr. Bob to discourage the exchange of valid information that would help others on this site.

The bottom line is, we are here to help each other. If I had knowingly withheld information and someone ended sick or even dead because of it, I would have had to live with that for the rest of my life. I did what friends do. I warned of imposing danger. And I would do it again.

Hang in there, Mag. Your Dr. apppointment is less than 24 hours away. Just take it an hour at a time, or even a minute at a time. Keep us informed on how you are doing. I will be praying for you.

Lexy,

Good to hear from you again! It is especially good to hear that you are doing well. There are a few Yo-Yo's having a hard time of it lately, and they could use another voice of encouragement.

God bless.

Trucker dont you disappear on us either...In the posts we all have our opinions and we can agree to disagree...You were trying to give us some advise on how grapefruit is helping you and we appreciate that and simus gave us advise on what she had found and that is great also..Now it is up to people to find out what is right for them..and hopefully along with everything that has to do with these meds we do not try to take anything that will be detrimental to our health and that is all we can do...Listen to the posts.. and make our own decisions..and Trucker I think that is what we all try to do for each other and we appreciate you very much...So hope that we are all good..and we love you and talk to you soon...Your friend Mystic

Hi Lexy - Thanks for your update. That is a good sign that you got thru your period okay, even with your b.f. leaving town. Where is he from that he has to go home? How did you meet him?

I'm down to 149 from 152 on the 10mg & I haven't changed a thing with my eating or exercising. I just hope it continues!! Even typing the number 152 is a scary thing cuz my pre-med weight range is 130 - 135. I'm 5'7" so that is a weight range I'm happy with!

Good luck to you on 10mg. I am really hoping to be able to stay at 10mg and just go up to 20mg for a few days before my period. I feel like I've learned a lot in the past 5 months since I've been on 20mg - about how to deal with stress and working through some of my issues - so maybe this has all been a good thing.

I hope you get to start planning a wedding soon :-)

hey guys just checking in. i went from 20 to 15 a few weeks ago and had a few really bad days anxiety -wise. im now trying 17.5. i also switched to taking the lex in the AM. since i did that, my appetite seems to have decreased. does that make sense?

Hi Mystic - I would give the upgrade 3 weeks before feeling disappointment. In thinking back to my increase to 20mg, it did take a few weeks before I could really feel it. Hang in there sister, you'll get there.

I was feeling yuck last week, but this week has been so much better & for that I'm grateful. I know my last few posts to you were kinda depressing! I am able to deal with things using humor and not get really down. It's so amazing what a difference it is between the week before my period and the week after!

I really hope you get to feeling better!!!

Hey Mag, hang in there sweetie! This will pass!! It could be the pot, I don't know. Just talk to your doc and let us know what he/she says. Just remember, the feelings you're having are not really reflecting who you are or where you are in your life, they're just feelings . . . it's just your depression or anxiety talking!

Try to get busy with a small project or something that will absorb you temporarily til you start feeling better, maybe that will help. Talk to us soon, okay :-)

Hi! You never know what will happen when you change med time and dosage! Our body's chemistry is very cyclical. I hope the 17.5 is right for you - altho how you make that dosage still cracks me up!! I like the appetite thing, that is very good. Maybe I'll try taking mine earlier too and see if my enormous hunger decreases :-).

Have a good weekend!
