I am 67 years old. I have Osteoporosis, and, mild but frightening episodes of brain fog. For years, I have been happily controlling my anxiety/depression with only a small dose of Lexapro (along with self help practices). Since I learned that Lexapro and other SSRI’s can contribute to my 2 main health issues, I have tried to a few times to stop taking it, but always start again because I hate feeling sad and anxious. Having watched osteoporosis destroy my mother’s health, and Alzheimers destroy my father’s health, I don’t want to risk taking these drugs any longer. But it seems that every medication has these or other side effects. What to do?
