So I've been taking lexapro a week now. (I'm also on gabapentin for nerves which had been working well til recently) 5mg and the first two days I had energy and felt jittery but ok. The next two days I was so lethargic I couldn't function. The last two days I go from jitters to crashing. I feel crazy. I've had so much panic this week I've been struggling to function. I also have had these weird electric current feelings come over me and some sharp stinging headaches.
Is this normal? Has anyone experienced this? I'm told to just hang in there, but it's been miserable.
I think the worst has been the headaches and the struggling to breathe. I keep trying to take deep breaths but having such a hard time. I had a panic attack laying down last night out trying to sleep. Each night has gotten progressively harder to fall asleep.
Thoughts? Suggestions? Help?
I do see my psychiatrist this week and am praying she actually hears me out. Wondering if this is the right med for me.
