> my symptoms: i feel weak and jittery, like i have no strength and i feel empty inside like i'm dying, and then i get scared and just want to lie down, but then i push myself to go to the gym and workout and even though it's difficult i'm still able to get in a good workout although i don't feel any better afterwards (sometimes i do)
> anyways, how can you tell if you're just feeling some anxiety and misattributing it as depression, or if you're really feeling depression, or if you're feeling neither but are just obsessing and wrongly attributing feeling "anxious" or "depressed" when you really are okay?
> btw, i've been taking Lexapro 30mg for 5 weeks now, was on XanaxXR before which helped me to feel better but the withdrawal was (is?) rough

Maybe the Xanax withdrawl is making you feel weak and jittery? Is that a pretty high dose of Lex? Lexapro 5 mg knocked me out, but I know everyone is different. Anyway, I agree that going to do something physical when you're depressed or anxious, is a good idea if you can get yourself going. Usually makes me feel better, IF I can get going. Anyway, the symptoms sound more like anxiety to me, just personally. Can you run it by your p-doc or T?
