I decided to stop the Lexapro. The insomnia and the sexual side effects are just not worth it and they are not easing up.
I wouldn't expect them to in just over a week.
If I were to go on Doxepin from sleep and anxiety, 75mg typical while ramping up to that?
The tricyclics are usually much more benign when it comes to startup (and discontinuation) side-effects, but I suggest you start at 25mg/day and ramp it up by the same every 4-5 days.
After 5-6 nights of just getting a few hours of sleep each night just becomes brutal. Very hard to function and I feel miserable. Doesn't seem to be letting up at all. The sexual side effect I could give more time, but the lack of sleep, ugh.
I will consider the Doxepin with my Dr, thanks. Is this a pretty good anti-anxiety med and safe in general?
