Lexapro Week 5 Blues Update-Week 6

Hi everyone..
Just wanted to report that week 6 has been considerably better than week 5...during week 5 i felt some depression symptoms creeping back..but in week 6 i can say that as far as the depression goes i feel much better...anxiety is slightly improved as well but i think that lex has done more for depression to this point than it has for anxiety...

so in reference to the post im replying to looks like my experience followed the pattern that ive read on some other that there is a slight backsliding after about a month before progress is resumed..hope that helps!

> I can't find my old post responding to this thread. I think I wrote it earlier in the week re: feeling a little down in my 4th week. I increased to 10 mg from 5 mg on Sat. nite 12/27, about a week ago. I forgot to take my Lexapro New Year's Eve, when I also got my way overdue period and had one hit of marijuana but no alcohol. Yesterday 1/1 I was very tired and at night I took my usual dose. I woke up extremely tired and I started feeling a little depressed as the day went on and I don't know if missing one dose + period + a little marijuana could possibly have triggered this?
> I also am leaving a job I have loved. I run groups for adolescents and tonight was my last time running one such group and the kids said very beautiful things appreciating me. I know this made me sad and a little anxious about the decision I made, but my current mood is more of a depressed feeling then just sadness.
> Just wondering if anyone has any perspective because I think I am lacking in that department right now. I know people have said there are ups and downs with this (and all) meds and maybe this is just my down but I am feeling a little discouraged and concerned that Lex isn't working for me anymore. Thanks.
