I have been so negative for weeks not posting blogs, not getting along with family, barely being able to post in my teams because of my attitude. Reading positive articles and motivating books didn't seem to help. It's true that my home life hasn't been the best having moved in with my son's family and I'm sure my negativity wasn't helping.
Then one day I got the bright idea to look up the side affects of my depression med, Lexapro. I had them all! Last week I went to the psychiatrist for my medication check up and asked him about it. He asked about several meds I had already tried with negative results and then he suggested Cymbalta. I started it while cutting down the dose of Lexapro week by week and after the first week I wake up with a smile, haven't cried for no reason, don't argue and can be loving to everybody!
I'm not recommending Cymbalta. But if you're on a medication for emotional problems and your situation changes, even though the old one worked for years, it might be time for a change.
Thank you for sharing,I thought I was reading about myself and I am on Sertaline and feeling like what you described above.I was on Cymbalta before,maybe I should be back on it. It's so nice when medication clicks and works for you! Diana 3602 days ago
Hey there! I've not sparked much, but there's no excuse except not caring for myself enough. I'm so glad to learn about the side effects of Lexapro! My neighbor was on it, seemed happy, but always NEGATIVE.. along with my mother! I've been used to it from Mom all of my life, but I'm guessing Lexapro brought it out of her more than she needed. Saw my neighbor the other day and she's happy and taking Cymbalta now and I finally enjoyed visiting with her. Thanks for the info, and best of luck on staying focused and reaching your goals! 3741 days ago
