    I take 1mg of Klonopin three times a day and never get the zombie effect. I've been taking it for close to four years. Still works as it should every single time. But to answer your question, .5mg is not a low dose in my opinion. Unless you're only taking it once a day. Be blessed!!

    I was prescribed Klonopin 1mg for breakthrough panic attacks or situations of extreme anxiety, so I have no experience of the med being used daily.  Sorry.  I've heard it has a long half-life compared to some other anxiolytics and that has been my experience too,  "Seems" in my case to take about 2 days at least to really wear off.

    I was on the WB 5 - 6 weeks. Not long. I had told my doc I didn't feel a difference. So he said bump up the Cipralex to 40 and stop the WB. But now I have less energy. That could be from the upped dose of Cipralex or the omitting of the WB, or both.
    I'm wondering, is 150mg of WB enough to do anything when taking, say, 30 or 40mg of Cipralex also?

    I used to take 400mg of WB a day and I have unheard of energy! So much that I had trouble sleeping at night. Doc put me on 300mg and now everything is normal. WB is like any other antidepressant in that it needs time to work. Some will disagree with that statement but don't give up on the med until after AT LEAST six weeks of continuous use ...

    enickols got a reaction from komorebi in Question About Female Attractiveness   
    Don't be bamboozled by the images promoted in magazines and commercials. To me, an attractive woman is a female who knows who she is and is confident with the way God made her. She's a woman who builds her house with love and compassion. People nowadays are so stuck on being skinny and looking like a model. The truth of the matter is with time all those 'looks' will fade away. However, the character and integrity of the woman will always remain the same. An attractive woman is a thoughtful forward thinking individual. I focus on the female attributes that time cannot corrupt or degrade.
    For instance, if I'm married to a drop dead gorgeous woman and she happened to get really banged up in a car accident will I still 'love' her? If my attraction is based on carnal things instead of those eternal I might file for divorce. Who wants to be in a relationship solely because of looks? Not this guy!!

    I've been taking Lexapro for about four years now. Previous I took Celexa but it unfortunately pooped out and quit working. Surprisingly, Lexapro is a LOT stronger than Citalapram. 10mg of Lex = 20mg Celexa. Lexapro is THE BEST SSRI I've ever taken. I would recommend it everyone. My $0.02

    I just wanted to take time and express how these two medications have changed my life for the better. Saturday is usually a day I either go hunting with my father or go out shopping or visiting friends. Before Lexapro and WB I would simply lay in the bed with zero energy and depressive thoughts ALL DAY LONG. Now I take my meds and within an hour I'm up making the bed and calling family members to see what's on the agenda! Thank God for pharmaceutical companies!

    In the US, call county mental health to start. They may give them a referral or suggest you apply for Medicaid. You can go to a free clinic but I hear they don't do much in the way of mental health. You can also call around to see if any mental health practioner will work on a sliding scale.

    When you feel ok is it a sense of empowerment? When you're sad do you experience a loss of energy and isolate? If so, you might be manic depressive or bipolar. Explain all your feelings in detail to your therapist. It might be good to keep a journal and track your feelings throughout the day. Hope you get better my friend.

I'm taking wellbutrin and lexapro now so maybe desire to be isolated will subside. Then other times I feel like driving over their house and going to the mall and things. I don't know ...

    Hi,
    For me, when i began to think about troubles in the life it made me anxious and lead to depression because I was sure the outcome would not be in my favor. Depression has never lead to anxiety but getting worried about a situation usually lead to depressive thoughts.

    enickols reacted to HopefulOne in What Dosage Escitalopram Are You On?   
    Hi Croser --
    I'm currently taking 20 mg of Lexapro for GAD and depression. I started in early November. I found that my anxiety disappeared first, but not until I experienced an INCREASE in anxiety during the first couple weeks of my build-up phase. (Which is a common experience for many people -- it's a pain, but it DOES pass.) I started at 10 mg., tried that for about 12 weeks, and then increased to 15 mg, and then ultimately to 20 mg because my depression still seemed to be with me. I'm cruising along nicely now at 20 mg.
    You'll have to see for yourself where your "sweet spot" is -- everyone is different. It takes up to 6-8 weeks to feel the full therapeutic effects, so I'd recommend giving 10 mg. a try for a while and then if you feel as though you're still struggling, approach your doc/pdoc about increasing. Many people find that 10 mg. is enough -- you may too!
    Best to you!
    HopefulOne

    Prozac is probably the WORST med to take along with WB for anxiety control. Why?
    One of the initial and major side effects of starting Prozac is wicked and increased anxiety. You may need a benzo to offset this.
