One hand in the crazy?
After my appointment with the doctor from hell, I was determined to find out what was causing my weight gain, fatigue, and hair loss. My hypothyroidism is boarder line and is being adequately managed with Synthroid, but the symptoms haven’t subsided, so I knew there was another cause.
My husband gently suggested (for the past year) that I might be depressed, so I finally made an appointment with a psychiatrist. And guess what? I’m textbook anxiety and mild depression, which causes all the symptoms I’m experiencing, so I was given a very small daily dose of Lexapro along with a prescription for Xanax.
At first I was skeptical and I wasn’t going to blog about my new diagnosis, but you know what? Serotonin is just another hormone that needs to be regulated so that I can feel better. Why not blog about it?
So, do any of you have experience taking Lexapro? Anyone else out there with their hand in the crazy, like me?
