Hello everyone !
First of all, I just want to say thanks for all of you that takes time to support and help...its amazing!
I take lexapro . I know its not citalopram but its similar. Since I read a lot on this board and that their is more replies, I reach to you for answers.
I take AD since 12 years for anxiety. Im med sensitive. Tried a lot of them but only a few helped.
I was on lexapro from 2014 to 2017. Made a burn out and anxiety, etc. Since 2 years, I had too many changes in my medications from my doctor. I saw a psychiatrist and she quit them in last october...huge mistake. I went into a real bad depression.
So since last november, I have a new psychiatrist. Im back on lexapro. first month at 10mg, then 15 mg from late december to late april. Now, Im trying to make my way to 20mg which is the max dose. Im doing 18.5mg. I felt good last 2 weeks but this week, I am really lighthead and sooo exhausted all day long.
I have been tired since my depression and all blood test are fine.
In the past 2015-2017), I used to take my med in morning. I remember feeling tired but not like now. I now take my med in afternoon.
I wish sooo much that cutting my pills trying to do around 18mg is not messing with me??? Should I go to 20mg? Is it possible that my exhaustion stopped???
My anxiety was better lately. I just dont understand.
Also... When I started to up to 18, I was cutting my 10mg pill in half and the other half in half to do 10+5+2.5. Now, I have a new prescription from my psychiatrist and its 20mg. So cutting it is not that easy. Maybe my doses are somehow not enough precise!???
Thanks sooo much in advance....
