Hi there ~

I am unsure of what you are asking for in terms of suggestions here. However, I understand that you are going through a lot. Having depression can be stressful. Physical problems like the neck pain and upper/middle back pain that you have may be adding to your stressors, along with the stress of divorce. It may help to increase the dose of lexapro, however you will need to see a qualified psychiatrist for the same. Norco, though helpful with pain may alter your mood. It would be best to seek the advice of your psychiatrist who knows of your complete medical history. I hope this helped.

Take care.
