I've been taking different generic versions of Lexapro for about 6 months (5mg) and I thought I was doing great, till i experienced a massive panic attack at 5 am a week ago. I had been out and I drank quite a bit of gin, which i hadnt done since i began on the drug. I dont usually drink and i thought maybe i suffered an interaction. Its been over a week now and my brain still doesnt feel right. I feel extremely depressed and lacking in all emotion. I thought maybe i should up dose, but I'm scared to do that. Could it be the generic brand thats doing it? I am staying away from alcohol now and i am seriously thinking about getting off this drug altogether.
