#Escitalopram #lowseratonin

Really anxious about work, this week it had peaked I feel so useless and inadequate I'm so paranoid and insecure every instruction at work feels like an attack like they're going to fire me anytime, and I started 2 months ago. I CAN'T stand feeling like this, wondering if I should increase my dosage, but also wondering if this is a result of not taking my meds for like 2 weeks in Jan 😞 but trying power on


Weaning off #Lexapro #Escitalopram

I've taken it everyday since I was 16. I recently turned 20. They are weaning me off and putting me on #cymbalta because of possible #Fibromyalgia the cymbalta helps the pain but I feel like I'm going #Crazy I'm overly #sad and #angry #frustrated I'm only down from 20mg to 10mg in 3 weeks. I'm a mess. I work in customer service so this is absolutely not okay. I need #help idk if anyone out there can help me. I've called my #Psychiatrist but I know he is not in today. I'm not a danger to myself or others. I just know and have experienced #nervousbreakdown before, and thatthat's where I'm heading fast. I'm not okay. I go to the #Rheumatologist in 2 weeks. I will ask for better therapist there, one who specializes in #ChronicIllness perhaps. Does anyone have any info on this? Can anyone shed light onto what's happening to me? #BipolarDisorder #Support #Depression #anger #MentalHealth #ChronicPain #SaveMe


Anyone on Escitalopram (known as Lexapro or Cipralex)?

Wondering if anyone else on this medication experiences dreams and or nightmares?

Has anyone succesfully weaned of escitalopram after years of using it?

I’ve had failed attempt after failed attempt of reducing my escitalopram dosage of only 10mg. I tried as little as 2.5mg less per day but after the withdrawal symptoms and a few weeks, my stiff arms, constant worry and depressive mood come back. My doctor says i am extremely sensitive to dosage modifications and i can only try weaning off again during a very stable period - which i’m not sure will ever come. Any good stories from those successful getting off the meds? #Escitalopram ##weaningoff
