Hi everyone i just wanted to say what a great turn around i had with lexapro. i started at 5mg, then 10 mg, and was sleeping like bear in winter. then months later, i adapted and moved up to 20mg and the day after taking the 20mg dose, I was NORMAl again. I mean, I 'm talking no sign of depression anywhere and I literally woke up laughing and loving life all over again. Lexapro and counseling real helped me and practically saved me. I have no side fx from lexapro, they all went away (sleeping all day and nausea), and i must say FM is so much easier to deal handle without the mental clarity probs and depression. I am getting back to exercise too and my mood has practically stabilized for weeks now. I have to thank the drug for helping pull out of the dark cloud. my life is ever more peaceful and happy.
