Does Frederick Laboratories, Inc. provide Rx in its charitable donations budget segment to 501(c)(3) treatment facilities such as ours? We work with women in a transitional housing facility in a pre-release program typically 3-6 months long. Many of the women do not qualify for Medicaid coverage and have lost their other insurance coverage by the time they get here since they are post-release from incarceration due to non-violent crimes (usually affiliated with their addiction to drugs or alcohol). All of the meds purchased for those particular residents must be made from charitable donations gathered to cover the expense.

In a police officer's deposition he refers to Lexapro as a depressant and stated that it was the same category as alcohol only alcohol is in a liquid form and Lexapro is in a tablet. He also stated that Lexapro works by penetrating the brain barrier and can effect the movements of the eye thereby cause nystagmus. Is this true? I thought Lexapro was a anti-depressant.

I've been taking Lexapro<20mgs daily> for my depression since late july/early august,and while it takes a while to kick in I've found that it works rather well so far.

The only side effect I've had to deal with so far is being excessivly tired & sleeping too much so my psychiatrist recently switched me over to taking it at night instead of in the morning.

Are you also taking Lexapro by any chance?

Did you combine your Lexapro usage with therapy? I find that therapy really seems to help along with the medication....as is I'm starting with a new therapist tomorrow & I'm really looking forward to it.

If all drugs were banned (except for some important anitbiotics against blood poisoning), and people would eat healthy, our "sickness and bad condition(diabetes, blood pressure etc.)" rate
would drop by ALOT. Too bad pharmaceutical $$$$ companies have much money for advertising.

If society keeps going down like this (more and more drugs), humanity's future is quite sad. Come on! How can 12 year olds have type two diabetes!!!!

billions of dollars have been spend on Lipitor.
The body needs cholesterol, and it has for thousands of years. Plus, Lipitor deprives the body of CoQ10, which is vital for life!! Your heart needs that.

I've been taking Lexapro for 2-3 years. No side effects, no sensation of any kind. I quit once, and there were no withdrawal symptoms, but the depression came back after 4-5 days. I wish I had $1 for each depression cure people try to sell me. Maybe they're wonderful programs. All I know is Lexapro works.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. W-PHARMACY .COM is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/PJZwMF only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
