  • Jennifer says:

    I was on an antidepressant; lexapro for 9
    years and then due to stress, it stopped working. Now, I can’t find anything that works as well. Why does this happen?

    • Julie says:

      I had the exact same thing happen to me, Jennifer, after 7 years and now can’t find anything as good as Lexapro.
