Hi Zak, I have been on Lex since the first week in March, going on four months now. Yes, this is my first experience with an AD. I was rather leery of trying Lexapro because my husband's friend was on it last year, and it made him really mean. I was scared it would do that to me too :eek: But the other choice he gave me was Paxil - and I've had too many friends that were on that, and their sexual side affects were so bad, I knew I didn't want to go anywhere near that one!! :nono: So - I tried the Lexapro - being very scared of it, but within two days I could see a huge difference in my emotions. I no longer felt like crying all the time and I actually felt happy. It felt so good - because before, everything seemed hopeless and I just felt so empty. I know what you mean about the obsessive feelings, my mind would seem to get stuck on things and not let go. Mostly things that distressed me. Now things can happen, I get over it quickly and move on - my mind does not get stuck there. That used to drive me crazy, or should I say, I would drive myself crazy with those obsessive thoughts!

I just had problems with nausea in the beginning, but I started taking it in the morning with a light breakfast rather than at night and that went away. That was probably really the only bad side affect I had at first, other than my mind seemed to be going 100 miles an hour, but that went away after a while and everything leveled out.

As you continue to take it, you will continue to feel better. You, my friend, are on the road to being whole again! :bouncing:
