I have lived here for 20 years, outside small town. I have 3 great teenage children and a good husband and i've done all the usual things to try to make friends ( got involved in committees, attended all events my children in etc. I get on fine at work but have no friend where I live. I know everybody but they all seem to have their own groups and don't want/ need me. This bothers me to the point that I dread weekends or time off work. All I notice then is all the social events/parties etc i'm not asked to or else I go to functions which i feel i have attend and end up standing beside my husband with no one to talk to. I don't want to spend the next 20/30/40 yrs like this. Just wondering if Lexapro would help me not to feel so sad, isolated and unwanted.
If your symtpoms of isolation and withdrawal are related to depression and the anxiety you feel during social events, then yes it could help. Only a doctor can do a thorough evaluation to see if you meet the criteria for a medication of this type. Your symptoms are affecting your way of life so I would definitely get evaluated. These meds are not magic bullets, but they do help.
