Hi Patricia - glad you had a nice weekend . Sounds like a window perhaps ? That is a lot of activities and it is great you were able to do them even though you were tired afterwards . Whenever I do social things I feel accomplished and almost like a 'normal' person . I also try to remember the good days when I hit with nasty symptoms, that helps .
Lexapro 20 mg since 2007 until 2013 with various attempts to stop. Most lasted 3 months, was forced to reinstate due to severe symptoms
During 2013 found a new dr and started trying other medications: Prozac, Notryptoline, Effexor, Buspar, Gabapentin, Paxil (each med about 2-4 months).
MOI Nardil (about 1 year 2014-2015) which did help with anxiety, but caused ALOT of weight and had a food reaction that sent me to ER.
Lexapro 10 mg 2015 -2016, few months 15 mg
Vibryiid 05/16-06/16 10-15 mg
Started to withdraw from Vibryiid around mid June with last dose in early July 16. Felt pretty good for the whole summer. Some anxiety, dizziness, short fuse, some weakness but okay overall. Comes October - dizziness, spinning, off balance feeling, FATIGUE, anxiety, fear, racing thoughts, insomnia, DP/DR
Reinstated 10/31/16 at 2.5 mg lexapro. Some relief, sleep better, severe DP/DR decreased. Still very anxious, exhausted, dizzy.
Switched 12/26/16 Luvox 50 mg (25 mg am and 25 mg pm). Dizziness, exhaustion, anxiety, sleeping ALOT
1/13/17 switched to one dose of Luvox 50 mg before bed. EXHAUSTED, sleeping ALOT, dizzy, weakness, off balance, anxiety
