So initially my doctor put me on zoloft for my depression. I seem to be really sensitive to any medication, so he started me off on a lower dosage, 25mg. I felt pretty much the same, maybe a tiny bit better, but when I would get irritated, I was way worse than before. Doctor bumped the dosage up to 50mg, and it only got worse. There was no middle. I was either "giddy," overly happy and excited, or I was a loose cannon, and I would get irritated extremely quickly. Over a few months, doctor decided to take me off of it, I was only getting worse.
Has anyone else had any reactions like this?
Now I have been put on lexapro, I took my first dosage tonight. Wondering what the jump should be like?
- When would be the best time of day for me to take it?
- How much different is it from zoloft? will i have the same reaction?
- How long before the medication kicks in and starts to work?
- anything else I should know?
I'm taking it in addition to starting therapy soon.
