Hi mummycat,

Welcome back! That's great your doctor is working with you to help you feel better.

Here's a link that might be helpful on Adrenaline fatigue.

Hi mummycat,

Are you seeing a family physician or a specialist like a pulmonologist. I myself have been on Lexapro few years back and never experienced vomiting from it. You might want to look into seeing a specialist.

Hi mummycat,

Thanks for your question. Even thou vomiting can be cause from the same coughing.  Which can sometimes affect your stomach. But most definitely, you should be getting either a second opinion or asking your doctor for more test.
