Actor, Director, Writer, (and Supermodel) Paulina Porizkova comments on using an antidepressant:
“I started taking Lexapro after my anxiety attacks came back and, for all intents and purposes, practically crippled me.
“I’ve always had anxiety attacks, or panic attacks as some know them, but after years of learning how to deal with them, I thought I had them under control.
“While my kids were little, the anxiety attacks even subsided to the point where they hardly bothered me. But at the stroke of 40, they came back worse than ever…
“I spent two years with my lover Lexapro; the two most mellow years of my life. My immediate frustrations were comforted, my resentments muffled, my anxiety calmed…But I was also insulated against or from fun things like my creativity and sexuality.”
