I Am Officially No Longer A Lexapro Ho, Whoo Hoo!!!

Hey folks, I got a song for ya to sing: (to the tune of Happy Birthday – the real version, not the Stevie Wonder MLK version. I hate that crap. I mean, I like the real song but I don’t like to hear it sung at a regular birthday party. It just…rankles.) Congratulations to me, […]

Yes I Can Still Count

I CAN count, but sometimes I get lost… I was trying to remember how many days ago I started the Lexapro Withdrawal Plan and I’m pleased to report that it’s been NINETEEN DAYS! With really no side effects to speak of. I am now on 2.5 mg of the stuff and after this we go […]

So What Happened to the Lexapro, Ho?

Some of you might be wondering what is happening with my Lexapro weaning plan. I’ve been pretty silent on the subject of late. And that’s because…it’s been going GREAT. I was taking 10 mg as my regular dose. I went down to 7.5 mg and took that for about 10 days. Now, I am on […]

Days 5 and 6 and My Daughter Is A Mermaid

So far so good! I made it through a week of reduced Lexapro without killing myself or anyone else! I thought it best, after what I’ve read, to reduce it in small increments, so I went from 10 mg to 7.5 mg. I’m trying to decide if I should go another week on 7.5 or […]

Day 3? I Think…

Is it Day 3? Or was yesterday Day 3? I can’t even frigging keep up. You’d think, given the carefulness with which one has to wean off of this crap, that I’d be taking better records of the days… Well, yesterday was…ok. For most of the day I felt fairly normal, but towards nighttime I […]

Day 2

Well, here we are on the morning of Day 2. The good news is that I woke up without a headache, which is a huge surprise because the BAD news is that I slept like total and complete shit. Can you explain to me how it is that I can take TWO ibuprofen PM – […]

Rough Seas Ahead

Okay, full disclosure here: the post in which I said that it was time to bid Lexapro adieu, I wrote that yesterday, but didn’t publish it until today. Meaning that last night was the first night in which I reduced my dosage of Lexapro. Meaning that today was the first day of dealing with it. […]

Time To Say Goodbye

Sigh. I’ve decided that I am going to try to wean myself off of the Lexapro. I don’t think it’s working anymore, and…I don’t want to continue taking it just because NOT taking it for a while will cause withdrawal symptoms. I’m not sure that this is the BEST time of year for me to […]

Stress and My Love Affair with Klonopin

It’s interesting how differently stress affects people. Most people I know tell me that when they are stressed out, they take refuge in food, and of course they end up gaining weight. I am the absolute complete opposite. When I am stressed, I stop eating altogether. I eat because someone reminds me to, or I […]

New Crazy Meds

Did I tell you I have new meds? The Lexapro just didn’t seem to be cutting it anymore. I’m not sure what the hell happened, but…something went awry. Maybe I missed too many doses. I don’t know. All I know is, I wasn’t feeling I-don’t-give-a-shit about stuff that I don’t want to give a shit […]
