**** I totally agree. I have had very good results with a couple of A/Ds over the past couple of years w/the exception of diminshed libido - but definitely stuck out a lot of taxing SEs. So even with the experience of sticking it out with several A/Ds over the past few years, I have to say I have been very encouraged by this message board given the G/I difficulties, massive headaches, weight gain, spacines, etc, on Lex. Into the 4th week and previously significant SEs are decreasing. It can be quite a challenge to find one that is a good fit. Good Luck!****

Hi everyone,

I've only been on Lexapro 6 days. I have no side effects. When did you start experiensing them? I take 10 mg's. The first couple of days I took it at night. I forgot one night so I took it in the morning. I felt great. So I decided to stick with morning. I quit Effexor because of side effects. What are the side effects with Lexapro???

So far I'm not tired, I actually feel energized and I'm sleeping great without the funky Effexor induced dreams. My joint pain is almost gone, my bruises are fading and I have no new ones. My vision is still a little blurry. No more severe constipation. So far I'm a Lexapro FAN.


Hi Wayne,
>
> Just a quick question- did you try other SSRIs before Lexapro? Were they at all effective? I ask because I've tried them all and the one's that worked pooped out on me, but I was thinking maybe I should give Lexapro another try. I didn't last long on it because of the side effects but maybe I should have been more patient.

But it is always better to see someone in the mental health field. I have had 4 pdocs in 7 months because I did not feel they were very smart!!!! They did not know answers to simple questions that I had researched, that were basic and easily answered. My opinion the man should have cut his dose in half until he reached a comfort level and then moved back up when he was ready. For a 1st time user of meds they should be given the lowest dose possible and moved up slowly. MY OPINION!!!!!! The side effects would be minimal and they would not be scared off!!!! Why suffer the side effects if you dont have to. Your still going to get the same relief from the symptoms at about the same time. Someone who has been on meds thats a different story they know what to expect and can deal with what will happen. I AGREE WITH WHAT YOU SAY kATHII !!!! IM NOT ATTACKING YOU IN ANY WAY!!! IM ATTACKING THE SYSTEM!!!!!!!!! TAKE CARE!!!!

Thanks, what a great site.

I recently gave up sugar and switched to a low carb diet and drink three cups of green tea a day. I've not only lost 34 pounds, but have felt much better. So personnally I think the web site was right on.

I personally had SE's from the beginning, started at 5mg, and had a rough time through about week 5 when things got better.

I think it's a good sign you are not suffering a lot w/SE's. I wish you the best of luck and keep us posted on your progress!

Hi there, you may not get any side effects. After what I went through with paxil and zoloft the little side effects I got from lexapro were nothing. You sound upbeat and that is good. Remember were all different and respond differently to the meds. But if you really want side effects Im sure the others would be glad to share theirs!!! JUST KIDDING!!! HAVE A GOOD DAY!!

3 Weeks today and new to the board!

Posted by Traci on June 5, 2003, at 11:20:44

In reply to Anyone switched to Lexapro? ggrrl, posted by Dr. Bob on June 11, 2002, at 7:52:48

Today is week 3 on Lex and the only side effect I have left is the inability to sleep more than 2 hours at night. I did experience the nausea, vertigo, shakes (skin crawled a little) and extreme jaw clenching (for about a week). I have been reading all the post over the last few days and find it very inspiring and encouraging to know that Lex is working for many of you! I believe it kicked in for me 2 days ago, it was almost as if someone turned on the lights. Very bizarre! I believe I may have been suffering with Depression as far back as 1994 (after the birth of my son). I have a Thyroid condition that has been under treatment for about 2 years and a long family history of depression. With all the added stress and change that has occurred in my life over the past 6 months I believe elevated the condition and have lead to minor panic attacks.

Anyways, even though the "lights have come on" I believe I still have a long way to go!

Has anyone experienced the insomnia? If so how long did it last?

Thank all for listening and sharing your experiences. -Traci

Hello Peoples, Boy! I sure do need you guys today! Today is day 17 (2 1/2 weeks?) I dunno, I can't think straight today. Can't stop crying either. I read the tea web site. Well, what the (heck) is that stuff made from? (I know, I should go to their official site to see what the ingredients are) The depression info was good though, ( I could answer yes to every symptom). I'm trying to hang in with this Lex, it's real tough, but possible thanks to you guys! I'm not sure that A/D's are a good med for me. I've been through paxil,zoloft(the longest,started it in 96,tried to get off in 99 but could not) prozac, doxepin, remeron, trazodone, celexa, effexor and now lexapro. I also have hypothyroidism, so I take synthroid for that. In 2 weeks I'm going to a neuroendocrinologist, I'm fed up wiyh pdocs using me like a dart board to throw prescriptions at. I know my problem lies with hormones (pms) and I feel that I'm spinning my wheels with these A/D's. Thanks for being here... Jackie

Hi Traci, isnt that lights coming on thing weird and wonderful at the same time. I remember when it started happening to me. I was sitting at the computer after midnight. I realized I was not depressed and then I was afraid to sleep. Because if I slept I may not have that feeling when I woke up. The insomnia thing Im not sure Im qualified to answer. All my life Ive had insomnia. The funny thing is when I started lex I fell asleep early for a couple of months. Then when I got better I was back to insomnia. I think it has more to do with my normal old self. I dont mind as long as I dont go through that hell again. But going by posts from this board and others things should get better for you in the sleep department. You are right you have a long ways to go. Just remember you will still have bad days just like every person living on the face of the earth. Just tell yourself this is a bad day and tomorrow will be different. TAKE CARE!!!

Hi Jackie, Im so sorry your having a rough time. Its like your doing what they say to do and your getting screwed. You take med after med and they dont work. I felt this way also!!! I really dont know what to say to make you feel better. I have no idea about that tea link I put up. It looked interesting and had good info. I am going to start saying what I think and dont care who gets pissed off. I go to a lot of boards and dont say what I think. But if your thinking of getting off the lex at least try this. If your side effects are really unbearable try cutting the dose in half for awhile. This may help you try the med longer. Or hang in there at the dose your on. I swear to you a few months I was sucidal and could not stop crying. You can go back and look at my old posts. It was the worst I have ever felt in my life!!!!!! But the lex kicked in and I pray it will for you also. Try as hard as you can to hang in there another 2 or 3 weeks. Also your thyroid can cause depression. Im praying for you Jackie!!! GOD BLESS!!!

Paxil vs. Lexapro

In reply to Anyone switched to Lexapro? ggrrl, posted by Dr. Bob on June 11, 2002, at 7:52:48

Need some help from anyone out there! I have been on Lex for about 11 weeks, doesn't seem to be making a significant change in my anxiety at all. I have gained over 10 lbs. and have some of the normal side effects. My doc is suggesting I switch to Paxil...need some guidance on this. Not sure about switching..I don't know that much about Paxil and how it is better/worse than Lexapro. Can anyone provide their own experiences? Any help would be appreciated!

Hi there, I cant give advice on the paxil since my bad experience was an allergic reaction. I dont want to try to talk you into staying on the lex. But I will say Im at about week 16 and Im losing more anxiety each week. But I also suffered bad panic attacks begore the lex. Here are messages about paxil, just run through them and you can get some info from people tht are taking it. One more thing you wont know if paxil will work unless you try it. No matter how many good or bad things you read its their experience and not yours. It might be the right med, nobody can tell you for sure!! GOOD LUCK!!

Hi, I am also new to this board. Two months on Lex for GAD - with all the SEs everyone has mentioned, especially tension headaaches. Went to 15 mg and now back to 10mg (to relieve headaches); take in morning (moved from evening). Slept great at first, and now I wake up around 3-4am with difficulty returning to sleep. Experience periods of lethargy during the day, esp morning. Am also on 2mg of Klonopin which has been getting less and less affective.

What concerns me is that after a two-week hiatus, my tension headaches have returned with a vengence, and I am more lethergic. Has anybody else had a similar reaction? Thanks for all your support. I have learned a lot from you that I use to manage my pdoc. I would appreciate your thoughts.

Hi Tim, headaches could be caused by stress, the lexapro or the klonopin. Im guessing you cut back on the lex to 10mg 2 weeks ago. The klonopin is some strong stuff and I could not handle it. I have a half brother who takes 1mg to sleep at night and he wakes up with that lethargic feeling and he also takes zoloft. Like I just posted Im at 16 weeks and still losing anxiety slowly. But like I said my anxiety I believe stems from fear because of panic attacks. I would like to say in the next 4 weeks you should be getting relief from everything. But we dont know for sure. Have you gotten anything for the headaches that may be a little stronger than you can get at the store. How do you take your doses of the klonopin. Twice a day or do you break up further than that. I used to take about 2.5mg xanax at first and then just cut pieces off when I needed them most. I now take xanax only at night. Some people take more klonopin than you do. But the real goal is to one day be free of the klonopin except for stressful times. Have you tried a heating pad for your neck to relieve the headaches or ice. Getting to sleep the right time I know can be hell. The pdoc can prescribe a sleeping pill that mixes with the meds real well. I have refused it myself. I probably have not said anything here to ease your mind. But if the med is going to work the next 4 works everything should get better. Always write your questions down before you see the pdoc so you dont forget anything. GOOD LUCK!!!

Hi Tim,
I'm getting the tension headaches, too. I've been using a generic analgesic ointment (like Flexall or Bengay) on my neck and upper back for the muscle tension. I also take Robaxin when needed - it's a prescription muscle relaxant. The combination has been working pretty well.

Thanks Wayne and Kathii,

I will start using a heating pad and ice, as appropriate. I have used Klonopin for ten years. Loved it until it became less useful the past six months. Got it from a Gp. Went to pdoc to see what to do and he said Lex as Klonopin gets really bad for the elderly (I'm 57). Wayne, my wife thinks this reaccurance is stress from seeing my mother this past weekend and early week. She is going blind and needed some assistance. Strange to me that these symptons would return after I lowered the dose and they went away. I will just have to see. Thanks.

> C's wife

Don't let anybody tell you otherwise -- people who can avoid depression under other circumstances feel "under the weather" when faced with several weeks of gloomy and rainy weather. I know it doesn't help me any. I've been doing 20mg of Lex for about 6 weeks now and the curtain is just starting to lift. I can't imagine anybody with any knowledge taking someone off Lex after two weeks. My doc told me I would be lucky to feel any different in a month. He was largely right.

LEXAPRO - Old Postings?

Ok, I am almost sure that someone had posted about
a SE I am about to ask about regarding Lexapro. I
really didn't have the time to look trhough all the
old posts.

But anyhow, I am not sure it is the weaning off of
the Lex or a new SE from starting Zorloft. Has anyone
(this is more for the women) experienced extremely
tender breasts? It is like VERY, VERY enhanced
soreness like when it is that time of the month.
I almost feel like you could just take a pin and pop
me, due to feeling swollen along with the tenderness.

Again, I apologize if I am just repeating an old
post. Thanks a bunch.

Thank you very much for the links. I have tried the
search thing on here and it just doesn't seem to
work for me. Anything I put in, it just seems to
come up with no finds.

Guess this might be one of the few times I will say
that I am glad I don't have a man in my life right
now. Nobody to get to close to and have the pain
increase with pressure LOL. Just when the dogs
decide they want to jump up on the couch with me LOL.

Thanks again.
DC

hi DC,

i have found that the pBabble search does not search posts AFTER June 27, 2002.

that's why i recommend using the browser's "Find" function instead, but it will only search what is in one window.....

alternatively, we should be able to use Google to search pBabble by entering our terms as "breasts site:dr-bob.org", but i have not given this a shot yet.

be gentle with your self!
TAKE CARE !!!!!

Re: Paxil vs. Lexapro

> Need some help from anyone out there! I have been on Lex for about 11 weeks, doesn't seem to be making a significant change in my anxiety at all. I have gained over 10 lbs. and have some of the normal side effects. My doc is suggesting I switch to Paxil...need some guidance on this. Not sure about switching..I don't know that much about Paxil and how it is better/worse than Lexapro. Can anyone provide their own experiences? Any help would be appreciated!

HI. I took Paxil and most recently Paxil CR and had good results vs. anxiety/dep. I have more generalized anxiety as opposed to anxiety attacks, etc., and it worked well....I was just tired of diminished libido and my dr. suggested trying Lexapro. I've been on it a little over 3 weeks and SEs have lessened and I feel pretty good on it so far. Hope that helps! Kate
