My Dr. put me on 5mg of Lexapro on top of my 300mg of Wellbutrin XL after asking to be put on Prozac. I took this for about a month then quit cold turkey. But I was miserable.

Comment:
I was prescribed this starting with 5 mg but have had increases all the way up to 20 mg. At first it worked great. no side effects except drowsiness. After this last increase, i feel so lifeless. I have almost no emotions. I feel stressed all the time and i still get panic attacks every once in a while.
