I've been off lexapro for 1 week now and have had the shakes for 3 days now.. I hate it. The 1mg of Lunesta they started me on does nothing and the prednisone is making my stomach worse than it was already... Did try 2mg of lunesta with better results and got 5 hours of sleep... I'm now skipping them and taking 2mg on the really bad days when I really need that rest to recoup after a hard day at work.. I missed one day of prednisone and I noticed a big difference in my stomach but also in my muscle/joints. Gonna talk to the doctor next month to see if I can take something else. The prednisone works but the affect on my stomach is too much to handle.
