Re: Lexapro
Mar 1, 2005
I had a severe case of vertigo at work in September of last year. Then my life came crashing down. I couldnt ride in a car-any movement made me dizzy with fear and strange tingling feelings all over my body. I felt like walking on marshmellos. Doctor thought inner ear- had MRi C-Scan, blood works, ears cleaned, valium, xananx for possible inner ear BVVP or MAV. I began experiencing "extreme panic attacks"-at times I was so terrified I couldn't walk-felt like my legs were jelly or just frozen from fear. I couldnt go to work all I did was shake "literally" shake-when time to go to work I'd have hysteria-crying . At work I shook my leg constantly at my desk-I was in fear I was going to have another attack of Vertigo-former boss not very understanding-(she was never sick-never missed a day of work-when she was sick came in and made everyone else sick -then get mad you missed work! ) Doctor put me on Lexapro- First two days if you can believe it was worse than the above. Woke up one night felt like I ate a tube of ben-gay (high flash from the inside out") Horrible feeling. Day three started to have nose bleeds-day four-jitters / puplis in eyes dilated and pulsated. Day five-I called doctor and said I give-up! I decided I try and deal with it myself. 6 months later still having some panic and lighted headed feeling. I tried Zoloft, Paxil, Exeffor the SSRI just didnt work for me-I just couldnt get through the side effects. I was a Program Director and had to quit my job due to anxiety-wish these meds helped or I could have stayed on longer but I just couldnt tolerate them. Now I take valium-helps some. my sister on the other hand swears by Celexa-she had some of the same symptoms as I-she is President of a local Credit Union and it has done wonders for her. We each are going through menopause and it just shows some drugs are extremely helpful for some-others it causes more problems. Sorry this is long. Good luck with the Lex or Celexa-hope you find releif.-because anxiety related problems are h*ll.
