sorry the Lexapro didnt work. It was the ONLY med that ever helped me. I think you need to follow your doctors instructions. She should know how long you need to taper off a med. I don't think you need to be scared after taking the med for 8 days.
Im scared of how being on all these meds will make me feel im alos on klonopin and i took the cymbalta this morning and i feels spacy,,,,,,maybe i just didnt give lexapro a long enough try but im so afraid of meds and it was making me feel confused and nowim scared of how the cymbalta is makinfg me feel 2 hours after taking it and i was on it befpore im med phobia any thoughts
call your doctor if you are feeling that bad. Call now b/4 the clinics close for the day.
called dr said i dont have to taper off lex and if cymbalta keeps making me so sleepy to take at night i have a big dinner tonight out of town and dont know how im gonna make it im tired..have u ever been on more than one med
yes I have. You sometimes get drowsy at first. Don't worry, just do what your doctor told you to do. You will be fine.
Both meds are in the same class. Easy switches are possible, especially since you've on been on it 8 days No need for taper.. Anytime there are brain chemical changes, expect a bit of a short term effect. If this is your first time being on meds, it may take a bit for you to adjust 7-10 days for the initial side effects to mellow down, with some it may be a bit longer. I wouldn't fret too much, it will only stress you out even more, I'm sure you'll be just fine :) I would take the drug 2-3 hours before bed if you can. It's safe to have both in your system, as well, some folks have other meds as add ons.
Keep in touch,
