Hi all, I've been on many SSRI's in the past and had no side effects from any of them. This is my 5th day on lex an am having some joint pains, ringing ears and my left wrist is a bit swollen. The 1st 2 days were AMAZING - absolutely no anxiety, couldn't worry if i tried. Started to have breakthrough anxiety on day 3 and today my anxiety is getting back to where is was before I started. I really had hoped I'd found my "wonder drug" and although I feel a bit hopeful reading all your posts am afraid this wont happen for me. Going to ring my psych today and see what he says.
