3 months on Lexapro--dip in mood.

Jan 26, 2014 - 0 comments

So about a week before my period this last cycle, I became fatigued, sore nipples, weird cravings, and I thought I was pregnant. The day before I saw my doc (three days before menstration) I became anti social, more fatigued, depressed, overwhelmed. When I told her about my experience, she referred me to a phsyciatrist that I can't afford.

Once my period started, I felt great! On cloud 9. Since the cessation of the menstration, my mood has gotten slightly worse everyday. I feel very dependent on my medication. I'm feeling overwhelmed, irritable, extreemly tight muscles, anti-social. It is so discouraging since I have been doing slightly better since I started on the 20 mg of lexapro. This is the first time in 3 months that I have felt a dip in mood this bad.

Need more medicine!

I took 20 mg the night before because I felt so low, and I had a wonderful day Sunday. It felt too good almost..."shouln't something be wrong?" is what I was thinking all day.

Not sure what I'm supposed to be doing with my life.  I felt extreem low self esteem today. Felt like My kids didn't want to be with me. Feel like I'm failing on many fronts in life. Not sure what I need to do to feel successful

I am on my week of blanks as of today, and I've been low the past few days. Negative thoughts have increased, self-esteem is lower, but overall, I'm still coping withthings very well. I'm still taking my medication at night. If I don't take it before 7, I get the chronic yawning, and irritability I'm going to try to take it at 7pm.
