Took just ONE 5 mg escitalopram….

Exactly one week ago I took 1, 5 mg of escitalopram in the morning and I don’t know if I’m sensitive to the medicine or not but it knocked me to the ground. I let my doctor know this was not a match!!.. Until this happened I am somebody who snowboards always in the water very active very social. Now I said, in my apartment alone. …Four days later, I was in the hospital because I didn’t know what was wrong with me having chest pains and almost all the side effects of withdrawal happening after 1 dose. They put me on Larazopam…Jump to a week later, and I am still having sensitivity to noise ,anxiety and a little bit of shivering in my body. I have an appointment to see my doctor tomorrow, but be careful this stuff. This is bad news. I know it works for some but if it doesn’t work for you, it’s hell.
