Well into my third week of Lexapro 10 mg, my side effects (sleepiness, dry mouth) are noticeably fading. So I'm hopeful that you give your new 20 mg dosage a chance. That's a heft increase.

As we both are aware, there are other SSRIS (like Paxil) with far worse side effects. I gained 10 lb in two weeks on that stuff, and I cycle 150 miles per week!

Lexapro seems at least as powerful as Paxil and a few weeks into it I think I'm going to find the side effects manageable after all.

Hang in there! -- John in California

> Hi, I'm new to this board. I'm been on Lexapro 10mg for about 3 months with pretty success. No side effect at all. But my doc and I thought we needed to up the dosage, so I am now on 20mg. Just started it yesterday. Just today I am so tired.
