... Lexapro and the nausea became unbearable. No anti-nausea drugs seem to stop the nausea. I will not take it today. How long should it take for Lexapro to be out of my system, so I can go back to taking ondansetron?
Hi, Goosey! Lexapro's mean terminal half-life in your system is approximately thirty hours although that can be prolonged by as much as fifty percent in the elderly.
Hope you're feeling better soon! Unfortunately, nausea IS the primary side effect of Lexapro and lasts for some days to a week or so.
Best wishes, Wildcat
