Posted 4 Sep 2017 1 answer

I was originally prescribed 10 mg of Lexapro and 1.5 mg of Xanax. I honestly did not notice a change with the Lexapro. Prior to the Lexapro, I was off anti depressants for about a year and off and on Xanax for I do not want to be dependent on a drug. My last session, I explained that I sis not ...

Transitioning from 5mg Abilify to 1mg Rexulti?

Posted 8 Apr 2016 1 answer

I have been on Rexulti for 7 days now. I use to take Abilify at 5mg. I know that Rexulti is very similar to Abilify. My question to others, what strength are you taking?

Effexor XR pooped out last May. The psych changed script to Rexulti and added Cymbalta instead.?

Posted 11 Feb 2017 3 answers

... Recently, I came off the Rexulti and I am only on Cymbalta. We just increased dose to 90 mg, however without the Rexulti it doesn't seem to be working. I wonder is Effexor XR and Cymbalta too similar and so I will not respond to the Cymbalta?
