Hi Karen - I am doing well. I hope you are, too. I did not realize how unprotected we are on this website. Anyone can read this imformation. I would like to keep in touch, however, not though medhelp. Would you like like to give me your email? Susan
I would like to think the Lexipro aggrevated the tachy - I just need to decide if I want to take the chance and continue taking it. I am really tired and i am going to call it a night. Thank your for caring and checking in on me. Will continue this adventure tomorrow. Have a good evening, what is left of it. Prayers for you. Susan
Karen - You are an angel. This has been a crazy day - I took the Lexipro around 2:00. Within 30 minutes I started a tachycardia that lasted approx 30 min. The event monitor showed nothing threatening when I called it in. - The echo tech seemed very positive and said he did not see anything alarming, however, the report as we know is the final word. The tech can't tell me much. I called my dr & the pharmacist to see if tach/palp/arrythmias could be aggravated by the Lexipro. They both said they highly doubted it, this was probably and isolated incident. So now I need to make a decision as to whether to cont it or not. I have no definitive answer.....and so it goes. What does not kill us makes us stronger????!!!!!!!!! Thank you again for being there!!!!! Susan
