I don't know Captain, I haven't ever felt that way when I am taking the medicine as prescribed. I am a bad girl sometimes, however, and have forgotten to take it for a couple of days. Then I get the dizzy feeling, and "electric shock" sensation in my head (common withdrawl symptoms).

You've been on the meds for 16 days now... so perhaps this is something that will ease up. I know I had a lot more side effects in the first couple of months. I've been on it for over a year now and I feel a lot more like my old self.


> Hey all - I was just wondering what your experience has been with Lexapro and vertigo like symptoms. One of the reasons I actually started taking lexapro (about 16 days ago, 10mg) is because I have had off and on vertigo and it has sky rocketed my anxiety (because i think something is really wrong with me that the doctors don't recognize yet or won't look for because i am a hypochondraic!) and I have been getting dizzy really easily. I have noticed in the past few days that during the evening I get a little dizzy. I also get dizzy when I go out to a resaurant or am about to give a presentation. I don't know if it is just adrenalin and I am vertigo prone, or the lexapro or if I am just making things up! It almost feels as if I have been on a boat all day and got off and still feel a little weird.
