Patient : I have been taking Lexapro for depression for 3 months now and I still feel no symptom relief and the medication seems to only be worsening my anxiety. I have chosen to stop taking the medication after talking with my General practitioner. Now my depression is even worse and I sometimes have thoughts of suicide.I feel I cannot talk to my doctor in fear that he will only be judgmental towards me or have me committed. Should I just put my own apprehensions aside and tell him the truth?
