So what is worse?? I have gained 22 pounds in this time. This brings me up to lbs. I have never been here before. Also my lips are so dry and chapped.
I tend to be very sensitive to all drugs in general, and have informed the psych. I saw of this, thus why he had me break the 10mg into a 5mg half and take that. Basically, when I take it, I feel a wave of "nothing" fall over me, not of calm, almost of a haze.

I had started out with 10mg of lexapro, and gave it the required 3 weeks to do it "best" but was having to take 50 mg of prednisone daily. I had all the same side effects as well Emotional numbness, increase sweating, ringing in ears, appitite, no sexual interest, and severe muscle cramping, so decided to go off the drug.
With a new doctors help, I am 16 days free of both meds, but suffering still from the strange muscle cramping and breathing problemThe short-term effects of alcohol (also known formally as ethanol) consumption – due to drinking beer, wine, distilled spirits or other alcoholic beverages – range from a decrease in anxiety and motor skills and euphoria at lower doses to intoxication (drunkenness), stupor, unconsciousness, anterograde amnesia (memory "blackouts"), and central nervous system depression at higher doses.
