[QUOTE=CAK70]I just started 10mg of Lexapro on Tuesday morning and I am curious as to others experience on it. How soon will I (if it happens at all) experience side effects? How long did it take until you were feeling the effects start to kick in? Any information is greatly appreciated :)[/QUOTE]

Crappers... I replied and then got a page cannot be displayed message... Here we go again...

It took about two weeks to get the full effect of Lexapro. The first night I took it, I had a nice buzz. I had a few small panic attacks the first month and I had my doc up to me 20mg. In hindsight, I probably should have stayed at 10mg but after about 9 months on the 20mg, I weened myself to 10 mgs.

The only side effects i had was waking up in the middle of the night (but was able to go back to sleep without any problems), I had leg sweats and gained weight (although I also quit smoking around the same time)

I would give it a chance and if I could recommend one thing, take 15 minutes or so out of your day and RELAX, sit and be happy.
