not been on here in yonks, but i am delighted to find this particular thread. i have been on lexapro for past 2 years, yes it saved my life in a lot of ways and i am grateful for it, but i found lately it was doing more to dull me and make me a little too insensitive to stuff. people told me, and i felt it also , that i had lost my wit and my edge, the good one!
I simply could not care, though i was far too sensitive in past (mulling for days with huge self criticism about the smallest perceived slights etc) . all about balance eh?
i put on a lot of weight since i was initially diagnosed with depression, i started WWs a month ago and found it incredibly hard to stay motivated and loss was so slow i could not care enough, so i decided to wean off. with psychiatrist advice. ouch horrible side effects, sleeplessness, brain flashes, rebound etc..
worst thing is i thought my eating was poor on lexapro, its even worse now i am weaning off, i am returning to my old crutch of take aways and eating everything that i love and is not nailed down. needing my old crutches. dulling the feeling sin the old way i guess. proving to me that the anti depressants simply dulled the old experiences.
anybody else experience this and when did u feel that the rebound was not as extreme that u needed to overeat etc?
would love to know what you all think?
