Lexapro Update

 

EEK it is 10:00 PM, that is past my bed time. I just wanted to give you guys a quick update on how my medication is going. If you read my first medication blog, then you know I was terrified to start taking a new medication. Like I said in the post, I have never had to take any medication on a regular basis for anything. So putting something new in my body scared me.

The first two weeks were rough. I take the pill before bedtime, usually around 9 or 9:30 every night. The first week, I could not sleep at all. I think I got about three hours of sleep the first week. I was so tired. I only experienced a little bit of nausea. The second week my side affects seem to be disappearing. Until I woke up in the middle of the night and the whole room was spinning. I mean I could barely roll onto my other side, it was awful. That went on for that entire week. Now, I am having no side effects!

Some changes I have noticed since taking this medication:

-I actually think before I talk

-I used to blow up on my husband almost everyday, now it has only happened once in the last month and half

-I think a lot more positively

Those are the only major things I am noticing. YES, I still do have bad days. Just not as often. I know were still in the beginning stage with the meds but I wanted to update you guys on how I thought they were working. I cant wait to see what else it can help me with! Thanks for reading tonight, good night and until next blog!
