I'm on 5 Mg's of Lexapro myself. This drug has improved my mood a lot. No more crying all day, or having a fractured emotional state. It actually initially increases cortisol, at least that's what a study showed, of course subjects were on 20 mgs. 2.5 is so weak, so might not apply. SSRI's have a purpose I believe, because the Depression can be so overwhelming!
