    I do wish I listened to myself when I was on lexapro and it didnt feel right, but after going into a deep depression and suicidal thoughts I realized that was NOT normal, and I had to come off it. I switched to fluoxetine immiedietely. My dose was recently upped because I was having a crash every night. It was as if it just wore off and full blown panic attack and crying. Now Im on 40mg and Ive been feeling REALLY GOOD! It makes 2 weeks tomorrow.

    Anyways, point it, listen to your body. Yes, there are side effects, but you should be able to tell if something is out of control or not. If this drug isnt working, they can find a new one for you and probably another SSRI so the transition will be easy. I had no problems moving from lexapro to fluoxetine. Good luck!

      No I didnt feel hot, if anything the first week I was constantly cold. However, if I get triggered by something that would normally send me into a crying/anxious state its like a waves of hot comes over my body, with tons and tons of pressure like Im going to pop. It lasts maybe a minute and its like I can feel the meds holding me back so I don't have a reaction, but I can physically feel it suppressing me? Its weird. Thats the only time I feel hot lol. It happened last night when I saw something I was afraid was going to happen, and really was an awful feeling, but not nearly as bad as crying. 

      That seems like a really low dose? I was on 20 and like I said I was having those weird crashes, but since increasing to 40 things has been actually pretty good this week. I do feel a little "high" sometimes, but damn its better than wanting to not exist.
