So tiredddd

MFA,

I started Lexapro within the last 6 months, and I did have those side effects in the beginning, but they subsided pretty quickly. Overall, I think it's a good medication.

Ldmcdaniel,

I couldn't ever believe I was prescribed adderall with my anxiety either. It makes for a terrible combo. Absolutely terrible panic. I guess in a way it's a blessing in disguise, because it was a huge part of why I decided to quit adderall. Oh gosh, Effexor is a beast. Getting off of that was rough....did you get that feeling like your brain was being electrocuted? I'm so glad I'm off of that medication! Lexapro has treated me much better :)

Also don't forget it's the middle of winter! Don't know what that's like where you are but here it absolutely makes me want to hybernate.

Cassie I am so happy for you getting a dog/s. I really really am seriously considering it, I think it would be great therapy. Only thing is I don't want to bring it up poorly if I end up getting a job that will require travel. I would rather not have a dog than a neglected one.

QO, thanks for the book recommendation I think I will check it out.

Good point. The weather here is brutal right now. It's 36 and windy...not like I can go play outside.

I forget that the weather is crappy for most of you right now. In Phoenix, we get our SAD in the summer. We don't want to go outside from June-September.

Yeah, I've wanted dogs for ages but only recently did I start to feel like I was ready to get them. We got two so they wouldn't be lonely during the day while we're at work, and we have a doggie door so they can go in and out. Best decision ever! I feel so much more alive now that I have these adorable things. They are total boredom busters! Now all I need to do is get off my ass and look for a new job and life will be pretty good again...

Kind of off topic but I just started lexapro too and it is making me nauseus, dizzy, tired, lazy. Did it have that effect for you too in the beginning?

I was on lexapro. I was SO TIRED the first couple of weeks on it. After that, it went away. Lexapro never worked for me though. Let me know how it goes foryou

Since we're talking about dogs, I thought I'd post this. We could use this dog in adderall recovery :)
