Lexapro Hell
Mar 1, 2011
I have been having stomach issues for years, I have a scope and some testing at the end of the month but thats another story. My GI issues were causing me a lot of anxiety so my doc prescribed me Lexapro, which after 6 weeks of brutal increased anxiety actually helped relieved my normal anxiety (if that makes sense. LOL).

Anyways, besides relieving my anxiety I've been noticing a lot of negative effects recently. First off, I really don't give a damn about anything, my job, my cleaning my house, paying my bills on time, my GI issues (which is good I guess). I've also noticed that at first I was waking up bright and early, but now as the treatment is progressing I am noticing that I would rather lay in bed all morning and not do much of anything. I am also turning into sort of a space cadet, which was never me. I'm a 26 year old guy trying to live a professional life and Lexapro is killing me.

I am going to stay on until my testing but then I think I am going to get rid of this stuff. It killed my anxiety, but has me not caring about anythings.

Anyone else run into this issue?
