I am a professional and I manage a multi-million dollar a year business. I was on Lexapro
for about 4 years. A family practice MD put me on it in
2004 during a very stressful time in my life (new baby, new job, relocation, professional licensure examination, etc.). Maybe I needed it, maybe not. I now know I did not have good stress coping skills at that point in my life. In hind site, the Dr had probably just seen the Lexapro rep and so there I was on it.
Fast-forward 3.5 years.
