  • 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
  • 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
  • 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.

    How long did you take it?
  • 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.

  • Never try to quit cold turkey. You have to TAPER off the drug, or else you'll have a foggy mind and run into walls and door frames!

    Anxiety
  • Lexapro works amazingly well for panic and anxiety. However, it makes you very sleepy, dizzy and gave me heart palpitations.
