Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Thank you for choosing JustAnswer! It sounds like your father whom I can assume is a physician has decided that Paxil is better for him than Lexapro.
And in addition you are feeling that your dosage of lexapro is "too high and everything is grey and heavy" meaning that we can assume that you feel over medicated. My suggestion is for you to go beck to your physician to say this and been suggest a change to a different drug. You need to be a good patient as they are a good healer. They will only know what medication works best for you if yo have good communication with your doctor. I would get a second opinion with your pharmacist as well since you have been on this medication for 6 years. Stay informed and keep utilizing the experts you have to help you.
