Lexapro was far & away the VERY WORST re: GI side-effects. One-two weeks in, I found myself lying in bed at night crying, almost screaming from the cramping.

I also know of one young guy - newly diagnosed with Major Depression - he ended up in the hospital from pancreatitis from Lexapro. Of course, Lex drug reps aren't going to admit to this - or they'll say that it's a rare fuke, but I was emailng a psychiatrist I happened to find on the net in another state - he does private practice & indigent/ clinic MI work, and he reported seeing lots of GI problems with Lexapro. Ditto had his associates from all over the states.

Next worst - alto it's hard to choose! - is Wellbutrin - horrible eructation from the second I take one pill - thereafter, it NEVER abates.

(When I am off anti-ds, I have no GI problems to speak of, but am, of course, severely depressed, sooner than later.)
