  1. Hey there, This is my first post and I'm feeling rather desperate. I'm a 26 year old woman and have been on Lexapro for over 6 years now. Around that time, I also became chronically fatigued (could easily sleep 12+ hours, couldn't keep my eyes open on the bus, work etc...) and no doctor told me that antidepressants could be the main cause.

Only after doing some researc

  4. Hello all. I am currently at Escitalopram, 2.5mg/day and Seroquel, 6.25mg/day. Any idea or link to a guide on how to taper this? How do I cut the tablets when they're already too little?

I had been experiencing mild anxiety but for the most part, I was doing really well. (Sleeping and eating better, more energy, basically what one hopes for when being put on antidepressants.)
