Mirap

My mam was on lexapro for the last 2 years on and off. She kept coming off them when she felt better. Then you'd notice the signs and I'd know she had stopped taking them. She started feeling really bad approx 6/8 wks ago and was put back on lexapro - she took them for a month 10 mg (i think). She then started having panic attacks and suffering from agitation, loss of appetite, weight loss burning sensations and pins and needles. She has now been put on mirap (on it a week) 15mg a couple of nights then 30mg I could see a marginal improvement but then she gone back down to 15mg and the anxiety and agitation started back up again. I am so frustrated with her at moment. My Dad died suddenly 2 yrs ago and we think this might have brought this on. She has gone from being an independant woman to a recluse and everything is negative.  Dr tells her to get a grip and attend Counsellor. She started attending and has given that up now.Help!

Be patient.  Your mother is probably experiencing something pretty frightening for her.  Her stopping her medication because she feels better is one of the worst things you can ever do (I speak from experience).  The rebound effect is dramatic.....  you can go into a hyper state or a severely depressed state.  She needs to be committed to one form of treatment or another... I'm not sure how you can get her to commit, but she needs to understand the importance of maintaining either therapy or medication, or both.  Try to be patient when dealing with her... as a bi-polar person myself, I'm fortunate to have friends and family who understand and can help me recognize when I'm getting too manic or too depressed.....

Please don't highjack someone else's thread. Use the orange button that says "Post a question". Also don't use all caps. It is harder to read and annoying.
