I started taking Lexapro about a week ago, half a pill only, and upped it to a full pill last night for the first time . Last night, I had a pretty vivid nightmare about someone breaking into my house and pointing a gun at me. I'm pretty freaked out and don't know if it was the pill or what. All I watched on TV was HGTV. Anyone ever have nightmares from these? I don't see it listed in the side effects so I'm kind of nervous now to continue taking this.
Good morning Want SUMMER; jUST AS SAM SAID IN HIS POST, yes I also had some pretty good and bad dreams while on Lexapro but they normally go away in time. However, that being said if they are too upsetting etc. Check back with your doctor and see about getting your medication changed to a different one. But if I remember right they went away within 2 weeks. good luck. Chuck1957
