Lexapro question
Mar 22, 2009
... I started on lexapro 5 days ago and I hate it so far. It is making my anxiety worse, I have headaches and can't sleep. I took 5 mg for 4 days and 10 mg today.

... No problem Foxii, I think the best method is low and slow on any SSRI. That is low dose and slow titrating, often with a Benzo on board to mitigate side effects for the first month or so. I found Klonopin very helpful as far as a Benzo, less sedating than Xanax and lasts longer throughout the day. Xanax is great for anxiety, I reserve it for only a few times a year when... (6 replies)
... ou guys have. These kind of meds cause me the exact opposite, actually. Hopefully these are side effects that will pass with time. I'm feeling pretty good...5 days at 10mg so far.

... but i think you shouldn't stop taking it completely without first talking to your doctor. Even though a month is not a long time, if you do want to stop lexapro i think you should stay on 5 mg for a few days or a week if the nausea gets better and then buy a pill cutter to cut the 5 mg pills in half, and be on 2. ...

... I don't know. I don't take Lexapro. But I clench my jaws, have muscle tightness and jittery's whether on a anti-depressant or not. You could have restless leg syndrome, have you checked that out. Anxiety gives you the symptoms you are talking about. Do you not have these symptoms when you are not taking an anti-depressant? I would think the SSRI's would totally help you.... (34 replies)

... do go away. The first week or so of anxiety will be increased, but Xanax or some benzo will help with that. I went through it. The sexual side effects last a few days to a week or so, but come back. I don't recall nausea or loss of appetite. The only side effect I dealt with that bothered me was the weight gain! ...
