  1. Hey everyone, hope you're all doing well. I just made a video where I go through my experience with mental illness, so if you're feeling down or hopeless, feel free to check it out. http://www.youtube.c...h?v=mtUM5TrHryc

  3. Hey everyone. I haven't been online in so long, but I just wanted to share this video that I made about my OCD. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mtUM5TrHryc
  4. Wow, haven't been on this site in awhile! Hope you are all doing well. :) In case you're in the same situation that I was in, don't be afraid to increase your dosage if you feel it's necessary! It can make all the difference in the world!
  5. Well I was on 10 mgs for 3 months, and I've been on 20 mgs for 2 months now. For me, I'd say it took about 3 weeks on the 20 mgs to not feel unnecessary drowsiness anymore. It's weird because my psychiatrist said it's very rare for people to feel drowsy on Lexapro, yet that doesn't appear to be the case for most people.
  6. Oh yeah, believe me, it did. Most of the time I couldn't even keep my eyes open during school. But trust me, it does get better. I never thought it would, but now I'm only tired when I need to be.
  7. Hey everyone, just wanted to remind everyone that is struggling to just hang in there! Today I realised that I haven't been on this site in a few weeks, which is remarkable in a way because when I was extremely anxious months ago, I would be here on for hours on end just to seek hope that everything would be okay. For those currently on 10 mgs of Lexapro and not receiving much relief, don't be afraid to ask for an increase! I did so, and I starting noticing changes within as little as one week. Pretty high dose for me considering I'm only 17 years of age, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. Good luck to all and I'll try be on from time to time to help others.
  8. Hey everyone, I made a short video about my experience a few weeks ago, and I just thought I'd share it with you all! I'm not quite sure if we're allowed to share links on this website, if not, I can delete this comment if needed. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XnelwjLz1s0&list=UU-D9FowQ4rdcT_esOny8QXg&index=1
  9. Can anyone suggest any other supplements apart from the one's that I listed that I could take? And just to refer to the original question, do supplements take weeks to kick in like antidepressants do? Roughly the same, longer, shorter?
  10. Exactly 3 weeks on 20mg tonight, and I'm feeling pretty good. Not at 100% yet, but I can function at school again. Won't surprise me if I see more improvements.
  11. Exactly 2 weeks on 20mg tonight, and still seeing remarkable improvements! Really can't wait for another month or so.
  12. Oh and I'm taking them with 20mg of Lexapro, if that makes any difference.
  13. Hey all, I'll keep this nice and brief. Do supplements take many weeks to kick in like antidepressants do? I am currently taking fish-oil tablets, vitamin D tablets, and magnesium tablets. Would love to hear what others are taking also!
  14. Well I've only been on 20 for 5 days so far, but already I can notice a major difference! Can't wait to see my progress at 4 and 8 weeks.
  15. Yay, saw my pdoc today and much to my surprise he wants me to go from 10 to 20 straight away. I'll let everyone know how my progess goes.
