Lexapro
« on: May 27, 2014, 04:08:56 PM »
So I've been  having horrible anxiety for about 8 months and my family doctor wants me to start lexapro 10mg. I was just wondering if anyone else has taken it and what if any side effects you've had.

I started on Lexapro about a week and a half ago and I've only been taking 5ml (the liquid equivalent of 5mg) so far and plan to wean up to 10ml. The only side effect I've really had is yawning. I started at 10ml and got really bad yawning to the point that my jaw was sore so I dropped down to 5ml and the yawning diminished. That's all I've had. Also, you may have a better time asking a moderator to move this to the Medications and Therapy section for a better response. MobileChucko is a very nice moderator you can send a message to and ask.

My only side effect was weight gain, but that's really rare with lexapro.  So much so that my doctor actually called me a liar and told me to go on a diet - I had to bring my mom in to confirm that I had basically stopped eating every other day, barely ate on the days I would eat, and was still gaining weight. 

So it probably won't happen to you.

I've been on lexapro twice. I've never had any side effects and it works well for me. I plan on going back on after giving birth in a few weeks.
