I can't believe my anxiety is this bad, but I don't know what to do about it. I've been taking lexapro for a couple of years now for my depression and anxiety. Awhile back my doc talked about switching to celexa to save some money... basically the same active ingredient, blah blah blah. I ended up getting health insurance (finally, yey!) and decided to stick with the lexapro since it was working for me.
So the last time I went in for a checkup and refill on the lexapro everything as ok but I went to pick it up at the pharmacy and it was celexa. I was about to head out of town so I figured, whatever, I'll just take it. I think my doc just looked back at our chart convo and wrote the wrong drug but they're basically the same. Now I'm back from vacay and let me tell you the celexa is NOT working like lexapro did. I know I need to call my doc about it but I'm frozen and debilitated at the thought of having to pick up the phone and talk to someone about this. It's totally ridiculous but I just can't do it... think I'm losing it!
