Hi I'm new to the group..And I have a prescription for Lexapro that I haven't started yet. It is a low dose to start out on.. But I am very nervous about starting it.I need some feedback on this medication.I am a female that has been diagnosed with generalize anxiety and depression.
I wish I could give you a 100% positive answer. As with any anxiety medicine, everyone reacts to it differently. Lexapro was not for me. It just didn't give me the results. In fact I had more anxiety when I was taking it. That doesn't mean it will react on you the same way. Try it for 3 months and see how you feel. It may very well work great for you. Good Luck.
Hi, run! I can give you a 100% response. I took Lexapro for almost four years with excellent results and minimal side effects (slight nausea for the first few days).
I had to stop it for an unrelated medical reason, but to this day I wish I was still on it.
Best wishes and good luck! Wildcat
