".why are you wanting to use less?"

Because at 10 mgs I was having unacceptable sexual side effects. Because the drug is working so well for my depression I am trying to find a way to keep with it.

One additional thought, You say that at 5mg the onset of the anti-depressant effect is slower than at 10mg. Perhaps the way to go for those who are known to be sensitive to this drug from their experience with Celexa would be to start at 10mgs to get a rapid antidepressant response and then cut back to 5mg to reduce the side effects.

Bummer for me that I am having these side effects at 10mgs/day. For me the side effects at 10 mgs of Lexapro are as severe as they were at 40mgs of Celexa.
