Hi again. I am struggling bad today.
Third day on lexapro (20mg). Right now, I feel so weird in my head. Earlier I was just cleaning and making lunch for my son when I began feeling very odd: hot, numb, out of my body and mind, accompanied by EXTREME FEAR. I thought it was the start of a p/a so I tried to continue cooking, focusing on slow deep controlled breaths. My vision went weird as well almost like it was somehow about to cut out, I told myself " calm down, it is anxiety, it is also the meds, that is why it feels weird" I was fearing I was losing control over myself, my body and mind. I thought I could faint. I reached out to my doctor to ask him about reducing the dose to go as slow as possible starting up the med. I am still waiting on a response.
If you are taking lexapro does any of this sound familiar? This began three hours ago and I am still afraid, on edge and concerned it will get bad again... any input or advice, anything would be greatly appreciated. I thank you so much for reading this.
