    Hang in there

    I started on cipralex last week. (escitilopram same as lexapro)
    I was worried about taking them as I'd tried ssri meds several years ago and the side effects had freaked me out.
    Anyway, my anxiety had driven me to despair so what I decided to do was take half a tablet for a couple of days followed by a couple of days on threequarters and the on to the full dose.
    I must admit that I was pretty scared and on the first day or two, I felt nauseous and agitated. By the weekend, I was feeling very lightheaded and spaced out but began feeling more normal by day 6. Feeling lots less anxious today (day7) and my blood pressure and chest/head/neck pains have eased off.
    Hope you feel lots better very soon.
