Default Doctor's appointment Friday

I've been on Lexapro for almost two years, and while I feel so much better overall, I still have mostly "okay" days, a few "really great" days, and a smaller amount of "awful" days. And I've gained 20 pounds since starting the med.

Some mornings, after my husband leaves for work and son leaves for school, I just go back to bed for another 1 1/2 hours, until it's time for me to get ready for work. I used to be able to get myself up at around 5:00 a.m. to exercise, but just can't get up that early, at least in the winters.

I have kept exercising, though not pushing myself hard enough, maybe. And I know my resolve about eating right just isn't strong enough, even though I want the rewards so badly.

So since it's been two years since seeing the doctor in person, I called to make an appointment, saying that maybe we could try something else? Most important, I want to get back to feeling good most of the time. But if I could also get some of my ability to exert some self-control over my big fat eating mouth I'd be pretty happy about that also

Good morning Holly,
Good for you for making the doctor's appointment. That first step is so hard. There are so many meds out there I'm sure you'll find the right fit.
Good luck to you.
