Trying to deal with depression without medications is often times really motivating. You will discover how much you're really able to cope and deal with!
It's common to have mood-fluctuations and swings, so remember your coping skills - they're there. An idea is to search for lexapro
in "Search this community" over the Recent Activities. I'd trust my doc too, but what I did was totally the opposite of medical advice when I went off my antidepressants.
