      obviously meds work different for everyone but I had a very negative experience with it. I gained 30 pounds since I’ve come off of it I still have migraines feel like it did not benefit me enough emotionally to bear those negative side effects

      Lexapro has been my go-to for about 2 years now after trying Zoloft and Wellbutrin XL beforehand. I have had good experience with it.

      Every medication affects everyone’s body different so take this as just my personal experience, it helped my anxiety. At the same time it made me apathetic and I didn’t have any motivation. Adding Wellbutrin helped with the energy!

      Lexapro didn't end up working for me , but I know people who its worked really well for. Just try to hang in through the initial side effects and if you notice anything alarming let your doctors know.

      For the past two years, I have been taking Amitriptyline. For me, it really helps. I recommend it, especially if you suffer from other diseases like fibromyalgia and anxiety …

      I personally take Sertaline which is an SSRI too and it works great for me.. it sometimes take time to find the right medicine and dose so try to be patient 🙏🏼

      It helped me quite a bit at first but after a year or so I had to add Wellbutrin as well. That was just me personally but with my SO, it helped him as well.
