I'm getting too tired too fast. I work every day and I use bus instead of cars. What's is the cause of this extreme fatigue that im feeling?
Maybe: The peri-menopausal period can cause a lot of changes. Notably, the introduction of hot flashes. Hot flashes that occur at night often disrupt sleep.

Side effects: Lexapro (escitalopram) and similar med side effects can range from mild to severe. If by "extreme fatigue" you mean falling asleep or not fully alert, you should discuss dose increase with prescribing doctor. Increases can be smaller, eg, even by 2.5 mg increments (break a 5 mg tab in half). This is just general info since I don't know details of your situation. Do talk to doctor. I hope this is helpful. ...Read more

How can I drain my lymph nodes naturally? This is just to treat a cold that is already one week old and causes extreme fatigue.
Maybe Unnecessary: While it would be okay to use warm moist heat and short-duration gentle massage on enlarged lymph nodes, I do not feel that will "treat" your cold or speed recovery. Lymph nodes are basically reservoirs for debris from a virus/bacterial infection. I would encourage conservative measures for a cold such as rest and otc medications. If symptoms persist, see a medical provider. ...Read more
