I have a friend that is severely depressed, he has been taking lexapro for one month now. He claims that it is causing him to lose his emotions, or become a zombie, or auto pilot. He is very distant and withdrawn now. He use to not be the life of the party, but fun to be around. Now he is depressing to be around. Should he stay on this or stop taking it?
He should be having a talk with the prescribing doctor right about now. It can take a month or so for this type med to work and the dosage may need adjusted. So to answer your question he should follow his doc's instructions, stay on the med until instructed by doctor further.
