it depends on the dosage of the medication you may take. In some patients side effects are common only in the beginning of treatment, other may experience side effects for a whole course of treatment. When side effects are rather serious, you should consult your doctor and chose another drug for your condition
Well I started on 5mg for awhile to see if I had any side effects. I was nauseous for the first week mostly and each day it was less serious. Also, I slept 10-12 hours each night if I didn't have an alarm and that seemed to never go away other than recently (I'm currently weaning off lexapro, I went up to 30mg, bad idea.) Any other questions let me know!
