Lexapro for stress relief

Common Questions and Answers about Lexapro for stress relief


808144 tn?1332724340 I am over my head. So completely stressed. It's.. I can't even fathom it. I hate December. I hate being at home. All I ever do is get made fun of or get treated like a dog, or there's yelling or fighting. I hate being at school because there's too much drama and my friends treat me like cr*p. I know I'm getting depressed again. I can feel it. I barely have time to breathe anymore. I have so many exams.
Avatar n tn I recently experienced relief of CAEBV symptoms after being administered drugs for a cardiac stress test. I was given Lexiscan 0.4 mg and 10.6 mCi of Tc99m Myoview. I was symptom free for five wonderful days and then symptoms returned. Anyone else experience this? I have had CAEBV for three years now.
Avatar m tn 47 yr old M in extremely good health, started having unifocal pvc's about 1 month ago. I seem to be having about 1500 an hour, but they seem to go away periodically. I notice them the most in the evening when I relax. Had an echo stress test and the doc said my heart was the picture of health, I only drink 1 to 2 cups of coffee a day and only drink occassionally, and Im a non smoker. My last physical was perfect although my good cholesterol HDL could have been alittle better.
Avatar m tn I take 20mg of lexapro a day for my depression and have been off and on MANY anti-depressants. I find that when I start back on the lexapro it kicks in after 2 weeks. Much sooner than the others. I had to ween off of klonopin a year or so ago and it took forever!!! Every time I thought I had lowered the dose enough to stop the side effects would kick in and make my body feel like someone had beat me up.
1390847 tn?1344657468 We are respond differently to these types of medications, so what works well for one, may not for another. I take Lexapro and have for several years with excellent results and no side effects. Your body goes thru an adjustment period when you first start taking this type of medication, if it becomes too bothersome call your doctor, or if after 6 weeks you don't get any relief, call your doctor.
Avatar f tn So since I was 28 weeks my hubby's specail needs brother has been staying with us. I'm now 32+3 weeks and been so stressed because his dad promised to send some money for groceries for him ( he is on their food stamps and gets 674 dollars in disability) well no money has come and we have had to spend so much money on him and skipped two major bills this month to get extra groceries and make sure he had a good birthday.
4268628 tn?1375041176 So I am 17 weeks now and feeling g physically ill due to stress. Any ideas for stress relief? Most of my go to activities aren't working. Between a creep video taping my daughter (who's 2) while at my in laws and my fil telling me I'm blowing things out of proportion, my husband reverting to whatever his dad says is law, and being the mean evil board member Sharing with 50 members their dues are increasing 3Xs what they're used to.....I'm sick and cramping.
Avatar m tn Im 16 weeks pregnant. My stress is at an all time now between work, school, family issues and trying to make sure my baby's okay. I just need some stress relief techniques i've tried walking, talking to friends but none of its working it just leads to me feeling depressed for some time. Mind you i've picked up on my bad habit of smoking cigarettes but not a whole cig or not that often but it makes me feel like crap so I need something else beside the just breathe technique.

Avatar m tn I was extremely tired but chalked it up to travel between east coast and west and stress at work; and my lymph nodes in neck were swollen but no fever. On 10-15-12 I went to my doctor and told her about the entire encounter. We tested for all STDs including HIV and everything was NEGATIVE. Then I learned about a 'Window Period' and that all STDs have one. So, the anxiety and stress began to engulf my conscious like a tsunami.
1274271 tn?1453262165 so here is my story! today was my first ob appointment and boy was i nervous! my heart was racing so fast that the nurse even told me my blood pressure was high lol but heavenly father answered our prayers and let us see our little gummy bear and his or her little heart racing, hubby was tripping out so much and I think he is still in shock lol. We still have 3 more weeks to go untill we are in the clear but im going to be nothing but positive from now on and think of only the best.
Avatar n tn Ativan has no appreciable effect on liver function (unlike Lexapro), Ativan would not accumulate excessively in the elderly (unlike Klonopin or Valium), and Ativan would provide guaranteed relief. Lexapro may prove to be overly stimulating. Lexapro is better suited for anxiety that recurs secondary to a depressive affect. Serax is another (weaker) option. Speak with the neurologist.
Avatar n tn I was given some special stress relief gum and it made me feel like myself for once
Avatar m tn Hi Mammo Thanks for your reply, im alittle confused now haha i thought that the Lexapro was for the Anxiety? You mentioned both am i doing something wrong with only taking 1 type of medication?
Avatar n tn Thank you for the advice. Just today, after my post, my doctor recommended I go up on the zoloft to 200mg and add 10 mg of Lexapro. I sure hope this works because it's so taking away from my life. Again, thank you for your kind words.

Avatar f tn i am weaning off lexapro (on 2.5mg ), and just when i was really glad that i 'll be off medications soon..my doc said that i shudnt be surpised if the anxiety returns and that i might need long term medication... now does that mean people with GAD can never be medication free? i have found of late that exercise has been of great help for me, my mood is so much better and i am able to get thru the day much more easily...
2216810 tn?1420856876 Hi everyone!My psychologist prescribed me Lexapro 20 mg and xanax 0.5 mg for anxiety ,PTSD,depression.But i am scared to take SSRI.Does anyone has use it and if yes,what side effect did you have and does Lexapro helps?
Avatar f tn This will help keep your levels consistent throughout the day to prevent the see saw effect your body experiences with stress and anxiety. Lexapro is a wonderful medication that helps with both anxiety and depression(which it sounds like you could have too) and it doesn't cause the hang over effect that a lot of medications cause.
