Lexy,
For me, I know that I have good days and bad days on Lex. I have decided I can control how Lex affects me, or, at least, I can control how I respond to how Lex affects me. There were so many days in the beginning when I would beg myself, "Just take a 10 minute nap, you'll feel so much better." I would sleep for hours! My body wasn't tired. I decided this was the medication. My solution was to stop coming home for lunch. This site has helped me tremendously because reading about the s/e, etc reminds me that I am putting a chemical(??) in my body.
Maybe this is the wrong way to look at it, because this makes me dependant on the medication, but I do look at my depression as an chemical imbalance that gets worse depending on triggers, like my allergies. I know that if I lay in the grass or play with cats I will be miserable tomorrow if I don't take my Allegra. Well, Lexapro is my Allegra for my depression. I am allergic to PMS, money problems, work stress, and most of all, wanting to get pregnant. Some people can play outside all day and don't get itchy eyes, etc., but I can't. So, I prevent it by taking the meds.

On topic, sometimes I do get the "brain fog" and I literally shake my head to clear it. I don't know if it works, and it looks silly at work, but it helps me.
