Hello good people,
Saw my MD today. She wanted to follow up since seeing me 3 weeks ago. I have been taking cipralex or lexapro starting with 5mg the first week and 10mg the last two weeks.
I went to her 3 weeks ago when I felt I could no longer handle constant feelings of dread, sadness and anxiety. She suggested the cipralex/lexapro as I had good results with it 3 years ago...unfortunately I declared myself better and went off it. I actually had a pretty good 3 years but late this winter I felt the downward spiral starting.
So, today... we both felt I was making some progress but great strides. It is only 3 weeks on the med. She suggested I stick with 10mg for another week and try going up to 15mg. I have mixed feelings on this.
Despite a stressful day, I think I felt stronger than any in the last few months. But, yesterday was a low one. I wish this depression/anxiety had a nice consistent climb. But I guess it isn't like that.
Anyone else here taking lexapro? Any advice? Thanks
