I'm now out of Lexapro. What can I do?!?
« on: April 30, 2012, 01:05:23 AM »
I just ran out of Lexapro.  I tried for months to get PAP (still processing).  I just moved and only recently got a medical provider.  Unfortunately my supply is gone now and I'm concerned about going off it suddenly.

I know there are other drugs much cheaper in the same class as Lexapro.  Does anyone know of an emergency drug closet so I don't flip out?

I just got a new job and haven't gotten paid yet, so I can't afford Lexapro at cash price.

Please help.

Sorry to hear about this, and I wish I had some way to help.  I remember going off depression meds all at once and getting really bad electrical pulses flashing through my body.  It wasn't all that pleasant at all. 

Hopefully, someone here will know of a quick way to get them.  I know here, the university hospital has a psychiatric office where folks can get free care and drugs, depending on their income.  I would think a call to a place like that could get someone in on an emergency basis, instead of the normal waiting time.

I hope you find a quick solution.
