> I've been on Lexapro (10 mg) for about 8 weeks. Past meds include Zoloft (exhaustion and sexual side effects), Effexor (nausea, sexual side effects) and Wellbutrin SR by itself(anxiety, sleep problems). I have a fair degree of anaorgasmia and lack of arousal with Lexapro. Doc prescribed Wellbutrin SR 150 mg to counteract these effects, but it caused too much anxiety for me. I just started on ReQuip today - too soon to know how it is working. I've noticed for the last couple of days (since I stopped the Wellbutrin) I have been exhausted and a little dizzy - I don't know whether this is the Lex acting on its own or just PMS or the natural tiredness of taking care of two little kids. Anyway - I hope Lex works for you!
> > I have tried all the SSRI's with varying degrees of success. Prozac worked by far the best but I hated the sexual side effects (although Buspar was helpful for those). I just started Lexapro 2 days ago. So far so good but Im wondering how Lexapro campares with others in terms of sexual side effects. Here is a list of the side effects I experienced. I'd love to hear others experiences:
> > Paxil- nausea; zoloft- breast pain; effexor-dry mouth, constipation; Wellbutrin-intense anxiety; Serzone-mental dullness; Celexa-intense spaciness; Prozac initial anxiety but then real success except for above mentioned sexual effects. I HOPE the Lexapro doesn't have this. I'd love to hear from others.
