Anyone else taking Lexapro?
I've started taking Lexapro for winter depression. I had a couple of weeks of side effects -- it did weird things to my appetite, I felt a little wuzzy, & had some headaches. But that cleared up after about 2 weeks.
Now I'm feeling pretty good. Partly that's because I just came back from a really nice vacation, & had time to let go of all my everyday & work stress. But it also seems to be physiological. That draggy "I hate everything" feeling is gone, and I feel like I have my natural buoyancy back.
It's quite a relief. It's definitely helping with procrastination, since I feel like being present and engaging in things rather than constantly having to fight a drive to disengage and go curl up and hibernate! Just wondered if anyone else is taking it. Since my depression is seasonal, I'll want to go off it in the spring, and I've heard some scary things about withdrawal. Anyone have experience to share?
