On friday when I didn't take the lexapro in the morning I was happy as a clam. Saturday wasn't so bad, by sunday I was a mess again...I had tried to lower the lexapro to 25 mg the night before...has anyone experienced worse depression on lexapro..is there anyone out there that is surviving on lamotrigine without an antidepressant?Dizzy

Is this what your doctor told you to do? You need to talk to your psychiatrist first before you do anything about not taking Lexapro or trimming it down. It is dangerous for you to be playing with your medicine by yourself. Also, we are not doctors so we really can't give you the advice you are needing. Please call your doctor so you can begin to feel better. There are a host of medicines out there that your pdoc and you can try. Good luck to you and keep us updated Smile

Does anyone talk 40 mg of lexapro? Not that I would try it without talking to my pdoc first..just wondering..I know it says max is 20 mg..I guess I'll have to talk to him next week..I feel like I'm hanging on to the edge of a cliff looking down into the abyss..maybe I should have bought some powerball tickets Smile
