Ok, planning to keep this short.
So I finally ordered the Lexapro and Trazodone after 2 weeks or so of holding onto the prescriptions; I started the trazodone 2 nights ago and the Lexapro yesterday. And I feel more anxious than I did before I started taking them.
I think I shouldve stuck to my guns - I don't want to depend on meds. The Lexapro had me lethargic and just feeling real 'ugh', so I didn't take it today.
While the Trazodone helped me to sleep (I had been sleeping good for the last couple of weeks, so it really wans't necessary), I woke up with a heavy head.
Today, I went on my 15 min break, and I picked up a package of alka selzer, and put it in my pocket. I thought I picked up one, but realized I picked up 2, then when I got to my desk, realized I had 3 of them in my pocket...confusion, one of the side effects of those meds.
When I bend down and come up, I feel like my blood is rushing, and I come up very slow and cautiously...
I prefer to just go to therapy, get my pain out, and let my therapist watch me cry until I feel better. I don't want to be on this meds, they scare me.
Anyone else been through changes with meds? What did you do? Did you continue the med? Did you switch? Did you just stop taking them alltogether?
