Temptation and consequences


Recommended Posts

I was using Lexapro

@10mg

Doing OK,

My Doc,reccomended

going to 20 mg,

if the

OCD didn't get better

or became worse.

The OCD is more or less

manageable.

But,Depression

was getting bad

Again.

(giving away my toys)

Meanwhile,

Depakote 500x2

the BPII DX.

I took liberties with the label,

started Lexxxing at 20mg.

Predictable results.

Increasing Hypomania,

leading to a

Mixed State.

For weeks now.

Conversation

With Doc,

led to chewing

and return to 10 mg.

I haven't done it yet,

as

ANXIETY

clutches my guts.

Gonna have to.

Supply dictates the change.

Any input,from

more experienced

Board members???

The ever-handy .44

not an option.

Stasis,

I was on both Celexa and Lexapro at different times. They were pretty mild as far as discontinuation symptoms go. With both of them, I didn't notice any reduction in effect until I had completely quit taking them.

Is the Lexapro helping with anxiety or are you anxious about reducing the Lexapro?

So sorry for your troubles. It's hard. Hide the guns.

Thanks Greeny,

I

worry about

reducing the Lex.

I was so depressed,

the higher dose

fixed that.

But the Hypomania,mixed state.

I don't know

what to expect.

I have impulses to

ditch the meds

Altogether.

'cept the Benzos.

Not to worry,

I won't use a gun.

I have a better

Idea.

Gee,reassuring,

That.

Hi Stasis,

I'm so sorry that you're doing poorly now. For what it's worth, you're in good company. If you feel that 10mg of Lexapro isn't enough to combat your depression, can you ask your pod if you can try another SSRI? (I'm new to these boards, so my apologies for not knowing your medication history.) What about checking yourself into the hospital to get your meds adjusted? Please don't do anything to harm yourself, Stasis. Please stay safe. Hang in there, buddy.

The Lexapro,

triggered

the Hypomania,

that got me BPII,

that got me,

Depakote,

that got me,

yucky,

to up the Lexapro,

in trouble.

It's the suspense

of what's next,
