Escitalopram the generic for Lexapro
« on: December 08, 2013, 12:15:07 PM »
Just started Escitalopram 2 days ago for the first time for anxiety problems and panick attacks. Is it normal for this medicine to cause diarrhea?  I take 10 mg a day taken at night but wake up with diarrhea! Will this stop? So far I only go once a day.

I've been taking escitalopram for about 2 years now and it never dawned on me that it might be causing my run to the bathroom on most days. But you know, now that I've read your post, it all makes sense! Thank you!

Just because I understand an acknowledge what I am worrying about is silly, doesn't mean I'm able to stop worrying about it.
