> I take the original 75mg Tablets 2tablets 3x/day for a total of 45omg. 4 days is not enough obviously, every medication requires 3 weeks minimum to acheive the desired effect. I tried the SR version which came out before the XL and it didn't work at all for me! The only bad side effect I can complain about is headaches with Wellbutrin. Back to the Lexapro I tried for 3 weeks I suffered serious nausea, insomnia,more headaches, and total loss of sexual desire. Just say No to Lexapro for me!

Hey Mike, hang in there for a few more weeks if you can. I cant say that I have had a complete loss of libido, unfortunately my normal libido is in HIGH gear 24/7 and I may have a loss of libido but it certainly has not gone away. Couple my high libido with a platonic marriage, and the depression and ~voila~ I havent a good sense to guide anyone on that SE. I can tell you that after just over 9 weeks on Lex, the other SEs have definately lessened. My belief is as soon as your body adjusts to the cocktail, you will come around in due time. I think the brain takes its own time to adjust to the new chemical stimulus and will find the balance after it adjusts to its new environment, to speak. Give the Lex a chance and of course ask the Doc. too and perhaps all will return to normal very soon. Good luck Mike and keep us informed too. This site is ALOT of help to us all and not everyone who is being helped here, will post! Happy Holidays to all and ALL my best wishes for us ALL too!!!! After all, we need it and we DESERVE it!!!! :-)
