> > My doctor added Lexapro to my "cocktail" mix and I cannot tolerate it. I started out with the 10mg tab. My memory was impaired (couldn't recognize my friends' name when said to me) and I could sit and daydream for hours. The worst part on top of it all was the nausea. I self-prescribed myself down to 5mg. The fog cleared; but the nausea turned my stomach inside out. Then I self-prescirbed down to 1/4 of a tablet. I'm still okay; but the nausea is still really bad. I called my psychiatrist and let him know what I was doing. At that time he said he wanted me back up to 5 mg. There isn't any way..I have been seeing my psychiatrist every 3 weeks and fortunately I see him next week. I just can't handle the nausea.
> ** what is the rest of the cocktail...the nausea in the 1st wk or so isnt uncommon, but it usually goes away in the 2nd wk or is possible the other meds or the "switch" may be the culprit...cutting down less than the 5mg often prolongs the s/e....stick with it, it will get better

I take Seroquel 25mg and 0.25mg of Xanax at bedtime and Wellbutrin 100mg, Lexapro 2.5 in the morning. Yesterday (Thanksgiving) I didn't have any nausea. That was a plus. Thank you for your input. I don't feel so much "out on a limb" by myself.
