I suffer from anxiety and depression; I was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder when I was 16 after watching my mother pass from cancer. I struggled for years with horrible nightmares which continued to plague me into adulthood. I decided to talk to my doctor about these unbearable symptoms and she prescribed Lexapro for me in effort to reconcile the sleeping problems, depression and anxiety. Since I have been on Lexapro; I have experienced fewer nightmares but it has left me somewhat numb to emotion, dizzy and hyperactive. I have also had an EXTREMELY difficult time loosing the weight I gained with my son who is now 6 months old and I work out over 2 hours a day, EVERY DAY and hardly eat anything!!! This weight gain has also added to my depression. As of now; I am no longer going to take Lexapro. Maybe I will add Yoga to my 2 hours at the gym and hope for the best.
