i started taking 5mg lexapro last week. i did really good. my anxiety was worse than usual and i was constantly worried about the side effects of the drug. i finally got over that and starting yesterday i increased my dosage to 10mg like the doctor said to. today, i woke up feeling absolutely horrible. i came down to eat breakfast, took one bite of the eggs and almost threw up right then and there. i ate some bread and that was it. it's been 2 hours since breakfast and i'm feeling horrible. i have finals today and tomorrow and i got a second date with a girl i really like tomorrow but i just don't feel good at all. i have no appetite, as i can't feel like i can keep anything down. i guess i have 3 options: keep taking the 10mg and stick it out, drop back down to 5mg since i can tolerate that, or drop it altogether. which do you all think i should do? i really don't want to feel bad tomorrow. if i could just hold out today and tomorrow...if i dropped back to 5mg for today and tomorrow, would that mess me up any? i'd go back to 10mg on wednesday (today is monday btw). plz help.
yeah everyone seems to say to stick with it but i just don't know how long i should give it. right now my physical side effects are horrible. nausea. no appetite (due to nausea). occassional stomach cramps. not many bowel movements. most of my problems are digestive. i just want them to go away. i've been on the meds for only 9 days but i'd have thought they would have gotten a little better.
