    Re: Re starting escitalopram

    Feeling pretty good thanks Mumzy.
    Much better than Zoloft and I've lost 2 kg already
    I put on a lot of weight on Zoloft.
    I have the occasional "twinge" but nothing serious.

    You'll get back to normal sooner than you think Kel.
    I was back to normal for 10 yrs after 5 yrs on Lex until a rush of things happened all at once.
    I'll stay on Lex for a while then get off them again and all will be good.

    Hi guys

    Sorry to dig up an older thread.

    Question to Phill2 and Mumzy - How you guys going with getting back on the med? I was off them for 3 months and have been back on them for 2 weeks. Not feeling too much better and from memory it usually only took 1 week for them to start working. I've never come off them and then back on in such a quick time.

    Appreciate your thoughts

    Hi Rosey

    I’m taking the tiniest bit off my 2.5mg so getting there! Not doing myself any favours really as I think I could feel better but saying that I am feeling better than I was

    Hope you feel better soon

    Hi Mumzy
    I think it's time to "bite the bullet" and go to at least 5mg if not 10.
    Good luck
    Phill

    Re: Re starting escitalopram

    Hi Mumzy
    Like all Drs mine wanted me to go to 20mg after only being on 10 for about 2 weeks.
    I just said no I'm doing fine on 10 and still am.
    I can't even remember how long I've been on em - maybe a couple of months now and all is good.
    I think upping the dose when it's not needed causes a lot of problems.
    Some people may need higher doses but you need time to adjust to the smaller dose to see if it works first.
