So far I've been sleepy, I'm having headaches, and dizzy spells. My doctor put me on this because I'm having trouble dealing with my coworkers who seem hell bent to get rid of me. I was told I'd be trained for the job I accepted and in light of that I've been ignored and left to figure things out on my own. My doctor and family think I may be taking things a bit to personally so here I am trying this. My mother took Zoloft for a number of years and it helped her. I wanted to be put on that because medically I seem to follow in her footsteps. My doctor said that 5 mg of Lexapro was nothing compared to what most people take. I had gotten to the point where the only place I felt comfortable was back at home with my parents. Should I even be trying this drug or should I tell her I'd rather try something else?
