I'm a 34 yr old female who has suffered from anxiety & depression off & on since I was a young girl. I've tried many antidepressants and natural supplants, had terrible outcomes w/some, & what I felt was relief w/others. I later felt that I wasn't my true self on antidepressants, so it was certainly a trade-off. I'm having terrible mood swings as well. I have post partum depression & PTSD (mild in a lot of ways), in addition. I'm afraid of the amotivational syndrome than result from SSRI use, as well as weight gain. I'm reading such mixed reviews/results on 5mg vs 10mg of the Lexapro, so that's confusing, too.. though I'm fully aware everyone's body chemistry is different. ANY insight would be appreciated immensely!
