any success stories? I weight 104 before lexapro now I weight 127. How can I loose this weight?
Nope. I only gained weight on Lexapro. And I still take it. You will plateau at a certain weight. I don't know why we gain on Lex. But it happens. I think because I eat and sleep more. But if I had to choose btwn panic or being large, the weight gain stays!! It is worth it. Good luck.
I am tapering off Lexapro completely actually. Just taking it very slow because I went from 15 to 10 and in the second week I started to get symptoms. So I went back to 15 than 4 days days of ten. It seems to have no side effects. the next time I cit the dosage will be from 10 to 7.5 and so on.
I agree weight gain is def better than panic attacks without a doubt! However I don't like the tiredness from it. I also refuse to spend money on loads of clothes =/ the pills are expensive enough as it is. I did change my eating habits and started working out again. I will keep you posted on how I do and if the love handles disappear =)
