  1. I did with my doctor who is indeed a specialist and they wouldn't prescribe me any type of benzo. I suggested a short term anxiety medicine to get over the transitional period of going on lexapro and he said they're bad, addictive (obviously) and gave me hydroxyzine which is used to prevent allergic reactions, however supposedly calming anxiety and make you sleep. They didn't work at all. I called my doctor and he just suggested taking more but it's not working and I feel like I'm losing my mind. I really am at a lost
  2. I think that's a good idea, thank you for suggesting. I'll definitely document as time goes on. I really appreciate the responses. It makes me feel a little less alone in all of this. Part of me believes I can't be like this forever however the other anxiety provoking part sees no other way of life. I'm stuck in this weird perception of everything and my mind won't be able to regain hope or be normal. As of now, I feel like crap the entire day. From start to end there's no relief just brief periods of time that I'm not crying. This is truly hell and wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.
  3. I just checked with my doctor and he said wait how you feel by Friday (the day he told me to begin taking 10mg) before deciding to move up in dosage. If not, wait longer. I know the extra anxiety and depression is normal when you first start up but this is debilitating. I can't go over 5 seconds without that dreaded doom feeling. The thing that's been bothering me to make decide to go back on my AD is within a few months I've been experiencing derealization. I've been very foggy brained, I can't concentrate nor hold a normal coversation. I know it's caused from anxiety but despite trying to exercise and change eating habits this feeing has remained making me feel like a stranger to myself. I know it's hard to understand, but I can't seem to be myself anymore. I'm afraid I'll be like this forever, I just want to be me again
  4. When I was 16 I took generic lexapro after several months of severe anxiety and overtime it was able to help me feel great and normal again. I am now 19 I just started taking it 6 days ago of 5mg and the anxiety I'm experiencing from it is terrifying and I don't know what to do. I feel like I'm going to be like this forever and if that's so then I can't take it. I'm so scared and really would appreciate hearing someone that's been on this that has experienced the same thing before it helping. I don't know what to do and everything is freaking me out. Please help. Thanks for reading
