Hiccup

Well, I didn't mean to take a break from blogging, but it just kind of happened.

My meds were switched on Thursday and I think I am experiencing a "hiccup" in feeling good. I was switched to Celexa because Lexapro is so damn expensive; even with insurance. I was told that Celexa is pretty much the same as Lexapro, but I think that it's different enough that I am noticing the change. I am hoping that in a couple weeks I will start to feel the full effects again. For two months I was feeling wonderful and then yesterday it seems I hit a small wall, or as I call it a hiccup. I started feeling down and for the first time in two months I was feeling anxious. I just realized that I also got a visit from my monthly friend and even with the Lexapro I would get a little down around that time. I am hoping that is it and by Monday I am feeling better.

I am nowhere close to how down I was before the medication, but I still notice the difference.

But there is no way I can feel down for long because Lynilu is coming to visit next weekend. I can not wait!!!!! It's been a year since I have seen her and the last time I saw her my eyes were swollen from crying and I was a complete mess. It will be great to visit with her, go to our favorite Mexican restaurant and just hang out. So...how many of you are jealous that Lynilu is coming to visit ME??? :)

I would be jealous, but S is coming to see me this week, Woo Who!!!! :)

As I understand it- Lexapro is the 2nd generation of Celexa, so hopefully it will be a smooth transition once you monthly "friend" leaves.
Have fun w/ Lynilu!

If you have a Wal-Mart with a pharmacy near you, you can get generic Celexa for $4. (Maybe you already know this.) Ask about Lexapro, too. They have a huge list of meds that they offer for $4 but some generics might not be on the list -- so ask. A lot of doctors don't even know about this, which really surprises me. :-)
