I've had a sore and dry throat a couple of weeks after taking Lexapro. It has me worried it's something else. Which is setting off my anxiety. Just wondering if anyone has experienced something similar.
Hi, Irivera! This is a common side effect (1-10% of users) which generally resolves within a few weeks.
You could try a product like Biotene which you can buy OTC to soothe and moisten your mouth and throat.
If it persists longer than 2-3 weeks just let your doctor know.
