I recently saw my doctor regarding depression. My general symptoms were anxiety and stress. He prescribed Lexapro. I have taken the meds for four weeks now and find that I am exhausted for much of the day. I have tried taking the meds at night but still have the same symptoms. I have been on and off anit-meds for the past 5 years (each incident began with post-partum depression) and each medication has had the same result (with the exception of prozac). Has anyone else had this problem and have you found a solution? At this point I can understand why bi-polar patients stop their meds....this is not living and certainly does not help in raising two active grade-school children. As for the Prozac my doctor hesitates to prescribe this medication because he finds my depression to be mood related.
