Day 6 Lexapro

I decided to begin posting my day-to-day progress just in case someone else here is considering a Lexapro program.  Before I began taking Lexapro I spent many hours on this board, as well as the depression board, trying to find something positive concerning this med.  For every 1 good comment I found...I would find 25 negatives.  I thought.."how could this be with SSRI's being the most prescribed med in the country?"

Anyway...I hope my little journal here may help someone.  I do realize that there could be side effects with this med but so far they have been extremely mild.  Mostly the side effects have been lethargy and a little increase in anxiety.

So here it is.  Day 6 has not been to bad.  Mid-day I did notice a drop in energy and concentration and seem to be constipated but think this is normal.  I did wake up this morning around 4:30am with the cold sweats and am hoping this will pass.  So far so good.  I'm looking forward to the 2 week mark which is when the doctor says I should see much improvement.

Until tomorrow.
