share about Lexapro? Did it make you tired at first? Did it raise your blood pressure or cholesteral?
I was on Lexapro at one time. It did make me tired at 1st but that got better and it did help. It did make me sorta spacey where I was staring off at things for awhile. Others noticed it as well. Different meds affect everyone differently though. It did help me though over all. Made what was normally stressful things just sorta roll right off me instead of being quite to angry mad or upset. Good luck hope it helps u. Oh also... it had sexual side effects. Couldnt have an orgasm :( but it may not do the same to you.
I have suffered severe anxiety, depression, and insomnia for 8 years now. I've been on many many medications and Lexapro was the first antidepressant I was prescribed and it worked very well for me.
I just recently started taking lexapro 20 mg again because my depression has started giving me trouble again and it is working wonders. It can take up to 2 weeks to fully get in your system but I know it started helping me right away. I hope it works well for you and if you are still having problems don't hesitate to tell your doctor!

I had been experiencing a huge amount of anxiety and OCD, so my psychiatrist prescribed Lexapro (10 mg). The anxiety disappeared fairly quickly. My compulsions went way down. Some compulsions that I had all my life were gone.
After a while, it had to be raised to 15 mg., because the effect was wearing off. But I am so thankful for Lexapro - it has changed my life big-time.
