I have been taking lexapro for years and I love it! The only side effects in the beginning was sweating, but that only lasted for a couple of weeks. At first I was only on 10mg, but then had to increase it to 20mg .....and it worked! I also have to take the brand name.

The side affects is on the med always...Side affects in Lexapro (escitalopram) are huge:: Rare: Coma confusion convulsions decreased urine output dizziness fast or irregular heartbeat headache increased thirst muscle pain or cramps nausea or vomiting shortness of breath swelling of the face, ankles, or hands unusual tiredness or weakness More Common: Constipation decreased interest in sexual intercourse diarrhea dry mouth ejaculation delay gas in the stomach heartburn inability to have or keep an erection loss in sexual ability, desire, drive, or performance sleepiness or unusual drowsiness trouble sleeping Less Common: Bloated or full feeling burning, crawling, itching, numbness, prickling, "pins and needles", or tingling feelings chills cough decreased appetite excess air or gas in the stomach or intestines fever general feeling of discomfort or illness increased sweating joint pain muscle aches and pains not able to have an orgasm pain in the neck or shoulders pain or tenderness around the eyes and cheekbones passing gas runny nose shivering sneezing sore throat stuffy nose tightness of the chest tooth problems trouble breathing unusual dreams unusual drowsiness, dullness, tiredness, weakness or feeling of sluggishness yawning It takes about 2-3 weeks for the body to adjust to the med. The thing is when you mention one of these affects to the doctor and he say it's not side affect of Lexapro, then it's time to change doctor. You figure the doctor know better, right? Do you really think the doctor know the side affects right away? Heck no. He needs to read just like everyone else. So, what is your favorite side affect? Most male monkeys probably like "passing gas" and "ejaculation delay".

Antidepressants aren't supposed to eliminate anxiety and depression. They allow you to manage it. You have to confront it, not avoid it.
robertk2007 (23 дня назад)
Side effects shouldn't scare anyone. It means the drugs are working. Stick with it and you'll be glad you did

I went through a few years of taking lexipro and strattera every morning. Every day after my classes I would come home and sleep for hours. I would fall asleep in most classes. My psychiatrist has been giving me the highest recommended dosage and it really helps me. Without it, I probably wouldn’t be alive today. With the problem with exhaustion, I started to take it before I go to bed every night instead of in the morning. This absolutely helped so much. Because I take such a high dosage of both strattera and lexipro, the levels are always high in my body, so it’s not like I take it and then it wears off after a certain amount of time, then I take it again. I take it every day, and the levels of medication stay at a certain level consistently.

Summary: young girl has some mild anxiety and takes Lexapro, but stops after three days due to fatigue even though all the literature out there tries to educate folks that the side effects diminish after several weeks and it takes several weeks for the benefits to kick in. That "said", starting and stopping a medication too soon is a common behavior, been there myself.
Emma Johnson (1 месяц назад)
I've been on it for almost three weeks now and I agree the first few days were very bad. I wouldn't recommend starting unless you can have a few days to yourself. Even now I still have fatigue, but for the most part the side effects are subsiding

I don't think you're "shy and anxious." The doctor gets his commision for prescribing you Lexapro. The definition of shy and anxious is Elon Musk and you're definitely not that.
Edgar Armendariz (2 месяца назад)
You are very brave for posting this video. You are not alone. I've been taking Lexapro for about 2 years now. I was diagnosed with panic disorder and PTSD. I have had my ups and downs with this medication but I feel that I still need it. Other things that have helped are working out, meditation, eating healthier, and sleeping better. The best thing you can do is to keep learning and getting informed about your anxiety. The more you know, the better you learn to cope with it. Its Still possible to lead a normal life. Always stay positive and never give up. Don't keep things bottled up. You have to vent whether it's through talking to someone or writing stuff down to get it off your chest. .....I hope my advice helps. Thanks for posting this video

Kaili Depies (6 месяцев назад)
Brittany, first off, thank you for sharing your personal experience about this medication. It takes a lot of guts to talk and share very personal stuff about one's anxiety. I too, had the same reaction with fatigue on Zoloft. I stayed on it because my doctor told me to keep trying it up until I was sleeping 20 hours a day, and could no longer run one mile (I run cross country for a university and prior to the medication I was handling 60 miles a week with no major fatigue). I appreciate the fact that you shared your experience to others about this!

I just get worried really, really easily from the smallest things. I always make my self get horrible anxiety from the smallest problems. Sometimes I can make myself relax for a few seconds, and I just feel 1000x better for those few seconds. I wish I could be like that all the time. I also have pretty bad social anxiety (I haven’t seen a therapist, but it’s pretty obvious). So I get really nervous when people talk to me at school, even when it’s about the smallest things. Yesterday my teacher was going around the class asking “hi how are you” to people, and I got supppppppppppppppperrrr fucking nervous that he was going to ask me. I don’t even know why I got so nervous, I just when into full fucking panic mode (but without showing I’m panicking). It’s been like this my whole life. I started realizing this wasn’t normal when I was 15. I’m 16 now and I still have these problems.. I’m currently trying to find a way to help my anxiety. I’m kinda nervous to tell my parents about it because I don’t know if I really need a therapist/medicine or if I just need to find some way to relax. Now I’ve been up the last few nights looking up ways to fix this, because I can’t stop thinking about bad stuff and how much I hate anxiety. I don’t want to go be like this for any longer. I don’t know if anybody made it to the end of this wall of text, but I just felt like writing this all.

I feel the same way, was in college class and everybody would eventually talk about sections of books etc and when it was my turn I was skipping over my words and everybody was laughing, it was hard as hell, once that class was finished I have not gone back due to the constant worry and shaking, and that was 3 years ago, I have panic attacks in front of my therapist and it seems like I wont be going back to her because I have melt downs in there and it gets worse ( coping skills not good and hard to manage once I am in panic ) and everyday life is hard. I have never tried any medications and scared to. I am looking into different meds and going to talk to my doc about it but I know how you feel....

kramer dorcas (8 месяцев назад)
I just got prescribed 10mg a day by my doctor. So far it has made me far more tired, depressed, anxious, and slightly dizzy. I hear this is pretty common for the first one to three weeks until it reaches therapeutic levels in my system. Maybe you just needed more time for it to start working. But if Exercise Works definitely go with that.
Savage Panda (8 месяцев назад)
You clearly don’t have SEVERE anxiety like I do. I would love to be put on medication for anxiety regardless of the side effects. I rather live my life being super tired then being anxious. Just my opinion.
Grandma Knows (8 месяцев назад)
Unfortunately, it is the new normal in your generation to have social and generalized anxiety. The question is why? What's different about these last few generations? The answer is so obvious, but it's not popular to even consider it add the culprit....vaccines. The aluminium, mercury, aborted fetal DNA, formaldehyde are causing debilitating mental and physical side effects. We're sicker than ever. Children suffering from ADD, ADHD, anxiety, asthma, allergies, autism, chronic ear infections, the list goes on and on. Please young people. Research these vaccines. Watch Vaxxed which proves the CDC KNOWS vaccines cause autism. Please please please protect your children by educating yourself.

I've studied pharmacology for about 5 years now. Lexapro is typically a neutral medication when it comes to sedation but some people do get sedated from it. You would probably benefit more from Zoloft or Prozac, both of those tend to be a bit more activating. The problem with Zoloft and Prozac is they can, initially, increase anxiety. This usually subsides in 1-2 weeks. Ideally though you wouldn't need an SSRI. You might benefit more from a medication called Buspar, it isn't an antidepressant. Buspar is an atypical anxiolytic. For some people it works just as well as diazepam but without the sedation. I've had great success with Buspar. It has a safe side effect profile. The only downside is you would have to take it 3 times a day every day to get the most benefit. The nice thing is you can just stop it without any withdrawal effects, even if you have been on it long term. Living with anxiety sucks, I know from personal experience. I have been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder, PTSD, OCD and panic disorder (I have been diagnosed with other things as well but they aren't anxiety related). If you can find a way to manage your anxiety without medications that is great and much better than resorting to medications. If you find, in the future, that you are needing something, inquire about Buspar. You may get great benefit from it. It usually takes about 2 weeks to really kick in but some people see improvement within the first week. I wish you the best of luck and hope you are doing well. Here is more information about Buspar: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buspirone

When you stopped taking the medication how long did it take for the side affects to ware off ? I stopped and i still feel really dizzy and jittery.
Shirley Jackson (8 месяцев назад)
I think its depend on how long you have been taking it. Please consult with your doc before you stop. You should stop taking it gradually.

3 days. Girl. I've been on it for over a year now and my god. Getting through the first couple weeks was the best thing I ever did. And really it's not that bad. I think you over thought the situation and freaked out. If you would have just dealt with it for a while it more than likely would have helped you. Or maybe it wasn't the medication for you. Either way. You'll never know if you don't give it longer than 3 days.

I've been taking Cipralex (lexapro) for years, and it really helped me especially sleep which I've had many years of trouble with. You have to be patient and take it till your body and brain gets used to it. It was very difficult in the beginning for me though. I'm 59 yrs. Hope everything works out for you soon.

יעקב (11 месяцев назад)
As one who's been on this med twice (counting my recent diagnosis) for more than 2 years I understand you completely. Not every medication is for everyone and you need to let your doctor know that, Lexapro for your age group I suppose you're >23 it's very risky. Usually a week for medication doesn't do much since your body hasn't taken it all in yet. I do wish you the best in finding a remedy for your anxiety as we all know it could be quite ugly at times!
Rob D (1 год назад)
I decided to stop cold turkey last night, flushed the 20mg lexapro down the toilet. The medication is doing more harm than good and the long term implications appear to be worse.

oh feeling like that sucks!!! therapist don't fucing help xanax helps and fucing dr's need to give it to people that need it, i have listened to all the people who talk about how they used to take it and how withdraw is hell but i took it for 15 years , 12 bars a day and got cut off for 18 months when i went to jail, so trust me i know but it is easier to stay on xanax and not worry about the side affects and this is from someone who made it 18 months without it ,anxiety never ends!and all the drugs make u feel funny and weird except xanax the miracle drug!!!

kg062007 (1 год назад)
You don't need Lexapro, you seem very funny, outgoing, and happy, not shy at all. One more thing, I'm saying this as a med student and as a person who has tried nearly every antidepressant, they should be an absolute last resort. Some of them ( like Lexapro) are really hard to get off of once you start taking them. They also affect your metabolism and personality in a negative way. I haven't been the same since I started taking antidepressants and at this point I can't really quit taking them.
Gary Cartes (7 месяцев назад)
kg i understand your intentions are good but you really have no idea how anxiety works judging by your comment. Please keep your advice to urself unless u are a doctor because someone may one day listen to you

Jenée Marie (1 год назад)
Brittany most medications will give you these side effects in the beginning (even those that are for diabetics like metaformin, which I am on for my PCOS). It generally takes 2-3 weeks for the side effects to subside and 4-6 for it to kick in and do its job that its meant to do. It is also very dangerous that you stopped medication that is chemically altering. I think this review is misleading to the benefits to lexapro as you were only on it for three days. I am sorry that you felt it wasn't worth it and it didn't work for you; I think your doctor should of informed you what to expect and given you a realistic time-line of when it will work.
Shy-Ann B. (3 месяца назад)
T From Tha Six how has it been for you ?
Grandma Knows (8 месяцев назад)
Jenée Marie Thank God she got off it early. These drugs are dangerous.
Shirley Jackson (8 месяцев назад)
Personally, I think her review is not misleading at all. She speak based on her own experience on the medication. She didn't generalize the effect of the medication so I think her point is valid. As she did mention, everyone had different reaction on the medication, some might feel great, and some might feel it too much of side effect. So, it's depend on individual actually. And, yes, lexapro should generally take 3-5 weeks for you to get the benefit if your body could tolerate the medication. But, I think it was a wise decision for her to stop taking it, as she barely unable to tolerate it in the first place. She just took it for 3 days, so i think its not dangerous as it haven't build up in her system yet. Unless, if she had taken it for years and she suddenly went cold turkey then, it could bring harm.
richard pohl (9 месяцев назад)
Exactly .
T From Tha Six (1 год назад)
Marie Marie Agreed. I've been on it for 7 days now, I generally feel effects from medications faster than most people and I can definitely say after 4 days or horrible side effects.. By day 6 (Yesterday) I felt literally no anxiety under any social situations & even talked to a few strangers. My anxiety came back today but it felt more manageable, I'm really hopeful to see what happens over the next 2 weeks or so

The Fluffy Rooster (1 год назад)
I had the same effect. I have a busy life style and cannot be tired even for a day or even for an hour. Even when I tried it at night I was tired all the next day. I tried drinking coffee which never kicked in. Horrible. Who has time for anxiety when you're so sleepy? I guess it works. But I'll take anxiety over loss of energy any day.
sonic hedgehog (1 год назад)
The Fluffy Rooster So... did you take the AD before you went to bed? It would seem in these cases you would be better. off taking it at night since it has a long half life.
persianboy153 (1 год назад)
Hey I'm glad you shared your story. Ummm I'm on Lexapro about since feb 2nd and I think it's helping! But I lowered my Klonopin which can be very helpful but addictive so I really don't know still. 2009 I got diagnosed with GAD. Anyways that's my story long story short I flipped out at a party once with alcohol and marijuana and the next day was not the same. Sounds like a movie right? I didn't know what anxiety was. But looking back I think I was always shy.and I was always outdoors in my younger years.
ΛLIΞИ GΞИOTYPΞ (1 год назад)
I'm on Sipralexa for 1 year now, it's the same as Lexapro. When i first started taking it my problems actually got worse, after looking online for user experiences it seemed like a normal side effect. This medication takes some time to set in, a week or 2. I woke up every hour of the night, had diarrea in the morning after 2 hours of taking it, my anxiety got worse, my stomach hurt like hell at times. I felt worse overall. BUT.... after about a week or so my body got used to the medication and the medication actually started doing it's job. I haven't got a bad day for a year now! My anxiety is totally gone! I feel great every single day! This is the best medication i ever used! Starting today i'm going to go from 10mg to 5mg. I will probably take this medication my whole life, i'm just going to try and see if 5mg helps me enough. i'l even try stop using it after a year of taking 5mg, but if my anxiety returns i'l go back to 5mg or even 10mg if needed. I would recommend this medication to everyone out there with anxiety, just keep in mind that the first 1 or 2 weeks you will feel worse, but hang in there! It WILL get better!

I experience the same. After 2/3 weeks of lexapro the side effects are still there. Mentally I felt a lot a lot alooot better. My anxiety and especially depression were gone, I could be in the crowds without feeling so anxious, my depression which usually appeared in the afternoon suddenly decreased and everything felt like fallen into places. But physically I felt bad. I had nausea, diarrhea, stomachache, eye twitching, insomnia. I stopped this med last week but it got even worse when I completely stopped it. My anxiety came back, I urged to take the med but I just want my body to be clear for awhile because it's been days since I have stomachache. I went visit a doctor and currently taking meds so I don't wanna mix these meds with my lexapro.
