Hi. So sorry you're feeling this way. Can you talk to your doctor about these side effects if there's something he can possibly give you to counteract it? Supplements or some other medication? There has to be something to counter that.
I'm praying for you my brother. Please hang in there. God bless you.
I was the same for the first 10 days or so. Your brain adjusts though and the tiredness stops. Hang in there... Most of these side effects will disappear in time.
The doctors are making Escitilopram the wonder drug that is going to be the cure for anxiety and depression, I beg to differ as I have been on all the well known meds for these disorders, Paxil being the best for me then my Dr. changed me to this wonder drug at 10mg a day almost 7weeks ago and I've started feeling very depressed and my chronic anxiety is only being controlled by Clonazapam which she wants to eliminate as she has been led to believe anyone suffering anxiety will only need Escitilopram. I believe each person is different and one medication does not work on all and no doctor should feel or treat patients that way. ~Joanna
I changed to taking Lexipro at night. It actually helps me sleep a full night. I was having issues taking it in the morning as well.
How much are you taking & at what time of day are you taking it?
