Until last week, I was taking 15 mg escitalopram and 4 mg Parkin (Artane/Pacitane) per day, and I was feeling energetic and able to study. Last week, my psychiatrist increased my escitalopram to 20 mg and also abruptly stopped my Parkin that I'd been taking for a month. Ever since, I've been so drowsy that I've been barely able to get out of bed. Does anyone know how long this is supposed to last? Is it due to increasing the escitalopram or stopping the Parkin?
