I take it at night about 3 hours before bed. That works best for me.

That's interesting. ManlyGirl suggested the same thing. I said, "But it makes me wired!" She said "10 hours later!"

I like Manly more all the time. Thumbsup

I don't know that I'm clinically depressed but I feel disinterested in most things except sex, computer games, doco"s and sleep.avoiding social events where possible.
I feel like an observer from fringe.
If I don't snap out of this funk ill lose my lady and by 6 inch extension my #1 interested.

RE: Lexapro, the fuck is this shit?
I was raised christian with an anti medicine doctrine.
Can't believe that thinking is still a default mode in my brain that has to be conciously overruled. Never had an aspirin until I was 16 year's old, pretty sure I've never ever had antibiotics.

Thinking i'll visit a doctor for the first time in 5 years, seems more then enough evidence antidepresents do work, or at least have a tangible effect for better more then worse.

I still get crap from some of my family about being on anti-depressants. They have the same anti-medicine biases you mention. My aunt uses the "better living through chemistry" like an insult. I just roll my eyes and say "yep, chemical imbalances require chemical intervention"

Clinical depression is not something you can "think positively" out of like a bad mood.

one of my best friends since I was a teen is a psychiatrist. She says this ALL.THE.TIME!

Her other great insight occurred when we were smoking pot and watching tv, that old commercial about the egg & frying pan came on.

TV: this is your brain (shows egg)
TV: (pat of butter sizzling in a frying pan, egg drops in) this is your brain on drugs.

Dr Lisa: if it wasn't for the the drugs your brain would stick to the pan

I loved Lexapro! Unfortunately, I was getting a side effect and the doctor took me off it. I was 'clenching' muscles all the time. I would be watching tv chilled out at home and realize my hands were in tight fists, my toes were curled under, teeth clenched together, body pulled up in a tight ball, etc. I would stretch out and within an hour be all curled up in a ball again.

But it was a wonderful for outlook and attitude.

Weird, I've been on 10mg Lexapro for around the past 10 or so years and it never got me loopy.
