... for over a month. No motivation, sleeping all day. After taking the medication, I cleaned my entire house, made dinner, paid my bills, ect. I dont feel any different(a little drowse). I just cant believe the difference in my daily routine. I read the instructions for the medication and it stated that it would take about 1-4 weeks to take effect. Is it possible that the medication has taken effect or is it a placebo effect. Please advise. Thanks
I actually had the exact same thing; I couldn't eat because my depression made me want to throw up every time I tried to eat. I got prescribed Cirpalex (which is what Lexapro is called in Canada), and the day after I started taking it I was hungry again! The doctors say that it probably wasn't the drug, so you're probably right that it's a placebo effect, but either way, just be happy that you're feeling better!
