Zoloft/Lexapro Adverse effects?
Posted by TW on September 29, 2003, at 1:12:16

Hi, this is my first time here and need help and advice from you guys.
I have been on lexapro for a bout 5 months now. I dont know if its helping, but all I can say that I get really itchy all over my body and its driving me crazy. The itchiness usually takes place if I am walking and sweating. If i take a shower because of the sweat, I start getting really itchy in my back, chest, thighs etc. Has anyone had this experience? The itchiness is making me bonkers and I have been told to go off of it by my shrink.

Also, My best friend started taking zoloft. She was depressed to start out with, but I think the Zoloft made her more depressed and suicidal. She finally took her own life after about 3 months after starting Zoloft. She overdosed on Zoloft, Celexa, Klonipin, Benadryl and alcohol. Does anyone have any suggestions on why she got so depressed to a point where she actually took her own life and what may have caused the overdose? I mean I have heard you cant kill yourself on Zoloft...
I would really love to hear your response as I am in a lot of anguish. I also read recently that the makers of Zoloft did a study where they treated people 18 years and younger on Zoloft and that of these 50% had increased thoughts of suicide and depression.
I am not used to this forum but if you could drop me an email I would be so greatful.
