  • Lots of bad side effects. Some cleared up after 1-2 weeks, others did not. Insomnia, headache and morning anxiety still bad after 7 weeks.

  • Don't assume you will be a victim of all side effects, I've heard it called "no sexapro". I had no issues so don't convince yourself you will.
  • May take a while to work, so it is hard to know if it is working for you. Be prepared for some jitteriness when you start and difficulty orgasming.

    Anxiety
  • Really helped my nasty anxiety and depression. Have an add-on of Wellbutrin for depression. Was concerned about weight gain but when I stopped taking it I was MISERABLE. Back on it and happy again.

    Depression
  • This is the only antidepressant that made a noticeable difference that I could definitely attribute to the drug. Unfortunately, I did have to discontinue taking it after about 9 months due to frequent, extensive bruising.

    Depression
  • When I started taking this medication, it made me pretty tired, so I would take it at 5:00 pm. I find that after taking it a year, it doesn't make me tired anymore.

    Anxiety
  • For me the medication caused a slight increase in eating/weighy gain. It's nothing abnormal, Id just warn people to be aware that you might have cravings so make a daily food plan to keep track of how much you're eating daily.

  • I wish I could still take Lexapro. It was the most effective medicine I have ever been on. Unfortunately I became allergic to the medication.
