How well do you feel Lexapro works for you? I've been on it for years but think I'm becoming "numb" to it if that makes any sense?

      I've been on Lexapro for close to 4 years now and I absolutely understand what you mean. It feels like I'm taking a placebo pill most days; I know I've taken my meds and my levels are right but it does jack all and trying to get my GP to listen is mission impossible.
