In highschool I remember taking a bunch of my friend's mom's 10 mg sample packs of lexapro (like 60 mg altogether) throughout the day and my pupils getting HUGE. And when I started looking on the internet about taking too much I was like "oh my god what was I thinking".

When I went to work (chill little independent video store job) my boss asked me if I had taken acid or something. I told her no, just a bunch of antidepressants.

I felt pretty vacant/empty the whole day.

Lexapro worked fine for me for years - though, haaa at your experience - but something about the combination of ridding my body of it and the BCP did not go well ... O_O

It's annoying, though, because it's tempting to go back on the pill, even with my knowledge of how those hormones can mess with you. It's just such a convenient method of birth control. ;/

SSRIs are very intense medications, and research keeps finding other methods that work just as well as them (such as mindfulness-based cognitive therapy and meditation) ... I wish I had tried those for years before I kept shoving pills in my face!

Ah well. You live, you learn. :}
