I HOPE EVERYONE IS DOING FINE.
WENT TO SEE MD OF 27 YRS FOR FOR HIS OPINION ABOUT MY SHOTS,
HE TOLD ME IT IS MS AND TO CONTINUE ON MY SHOTS.
HE ORDER ME MEDS. FOR DEPRESSION LEXAPRO.
ALSO A PRESCIRPTION FOR A SCOOTER. I HAD A GREAT VISIT.
HE IS THE FIRST ONE TO DX ME. GOING THIS SUNDAY FOR
MRI ON BRAIN AND C-SPINE. I STILL AM NOT HANDLEING IT WELL.
HE SAID THAT A POSSIBLE DX FOR MS IS LIKE A DIFINATE OR YES.
I TRUST HIS WORD.
HAS ANYONE TAKEN LEXAPRO ? AND HOW DO U FEEL?
THANK YOU MY FRIENDS. KITTEN
I'M GLAD YOU HAD A GREAT VISIT WITH YOUR OLD NEURO!
I CAN UNDERSTAND YOU NOT HANDLING IT WELL. I'M STILL LOOKING FOR A DIAGNOSIS (I'M "POSSIBLE MS"). IT'S BEEN 8 MONTHS AND IF I DO FINALLY GET THAT DEFINITE DIAGNOSIS, I KNOW IT WILL BE HARD TO ADJUST TO IT. ESPECIALLY IF I HAVE TO GIVE MYSELF AN INJECTION EVERY DAY!
I AM ON LEXAPRO. I ASKED MY NEURO FOR SOMETHING MORE REGULAR TO TAKE FOR MY STRESS AND ANXIETY SINCE I SEEM TO FEEL WELL ON THE XANAX.
I AM ON 10 MG. MY NEURO HAD ME TAPER UP. I WAS ON 5 MG FOR 2 WEEKS BEFORE TAKING THE FULL 10 MG. I'M DOING VERY WELL WITH IT. I HAVE BEEN ON IT FOR ABOUT A 1.5 MONTHS. I WAS TOLD THAT IT TAKES ABOUT 4-6 WEEKS TO FEEL THE FULL EFFECT FROM THE DRUG, SO DON'T BE TOO DISCOURAGED IF YOU DON'T FEEL MUCH DIFFERENT RIGHT AWAY.
THE ONLY SIDE EFFECT THAT I HAD WAS FATIGUE WITH THE 5 MG DOSAGE. ONCE I STARTED ON THE 10 MG DOSAGE, THAT WENT AWAY. I HAVEN'T BEEN SO PRODUCTIVE AROUND MY HOUSE IN A LONG TIME! I ALMOST FEEL BACK TO NORMAL!
I HOPE THE LEXAPRO WORKS FOR YOU! LET US KNOW HOW YOU ARE DOING ON IT!
I HAVE TO START WITH 5 MG FIRST ALSO FOR THE FIRST 2 WEEKS,
THEN 10 MG. I HAVE TREMORS ON MY LEFT SIDE OF MY BODY
I HOPE IT HELPS ME OUT WITH THEM. ALSO THIS DOCTOR IS MY
MEDICAL DOCTOR, I HAVE BEEN THREW 2 NEURO'S ALREADY,THEY BOTH SAID
POSSIBLE ALSO. BUT I LEARNED THAT IF YOU ARE DX POSSIBLE MS
YOU ARE MORE THEN LIKELY TO HAVE MS, NO ONE CAN GIVE
YOU A DIFINATE FOR A LEAST 2 YRS. MY MD KNEW IT BEFORE I WENT TO
MY FIRST NEURO VISIT. HE READ MY MRI REPORT.
THANKS AGAIN I WILL LET U NO HOW I MAKE OUT WITH MY LEXAPRO. KITTEN
HI, I JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW THAT I WAS PRAYING FOR YOU AND I HOPE THINGS GET BETTER. I KNOW HOW YOU FEEL FINALLY HEARING THE WORDS MS FOR REAL. EVEN THOUGH YOU KNEW THATS WHAT IT WAS IT IS STILL A SHOCK TO KNOW FOR SURE.
IT'S A SCARRY NEW WORLD WE ARE FACING AND THE ONLY WAY TO DO IT IS ONE DAY AT A TIME. BEFORE I START EACH DAY I ASK THE LORD TO MAKE THIS DAY BETTER THAN THE LAST AND TO LET ME HELP JUST ONE PERSON HEAR ABOUT YOU.
ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING AND ONE THING ABOUT THIS PLACE IS YOU CANT HELP BUT HAVE A GOOD ONE AFTER TALKING HERE FOR A WHILE.
I'VE HEARD OTHERS MENTION THAT IT HELPS WITH THEIR TREMORS.
I HAVE FINE BILATERAL HAND TREMORS. MY NEURO TOLD ME THAT THEY ARE NOT TYPICAL MS TREMORS. THEY GO AWAY WHEN I TAKE XANAX.
THEY HAVE LESSENED A BIT WITH THE LEXAPRO, BUT I STILL HAVE THEM. I JUST DON'T NOTICE THEM AT ALL ANYMORE THOUGH. :)
SINCE I DON'T KNOW THE CAUSE OF MY TREMORS, THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT THE LEXAPRO WILL NOT HELP WITH YOURS. HOPEFULLY, IT'LL DO WELL FOR YOU!
YEAH, I'M TRYING TO PREPARE MYSELF FOR THAT DEFINITE DIAGNOSIS. MY NEURO ISN'T GIVING UP ON ME. PERHAPS I'LL FINALLY GET THAT OFFICIAL DX WHEN I HAVE MY REPEAT MRI NEXT YEAR. NOT THAT I REALLY WANT THE DIAGNOSIS, JUST WANT AN ANSWER AND FINALLY GET ON A MED THAT WILL HOPEFULLY SLOW THE MONSTER DOWN!!
THANKS FOR YOUR PRAYERS. NOW I WANT TO FINE A SURPORT GROUP.
I AM GOING TO SIGN UP FOR AN MS WALK IN MY COUNTY NEXT MONTH.
I AM A BIT NERVOUS, BUT I WILL HAVE MY FAMILY WITH ME.
YOUR A GREAT FRIEND I HOPE ALL IS WELL WITH YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.
I PRAY FOR A CURE SOON. KITTEN
