I took my new medication today "lexapro" im on 10 mg for now. What's it like? Will I gain weight cause I like my body the way it is. Just tell me your experience. Thanks :)
I really wish I could he'll but my doc prescribed it to me and I took one dose and felt extremely funny and couldn't sleep so I went back and she gave me celexa I took my first one last night and still couldn't sleep but it seems to be working and I don't feel funny btw lexapro took my appitite away as well as the celexa so. U shouldn't have to worry about weight gain... I hope every thing works out for you
I doubt you will gain weight. Most people do not. You may experience some mild side effects as you continue to take the Lexapro but these will subside in a week or two. It will take upwards of a month for this medicine to reach maximum effectiveness so gotta be patient.
Wishing you the very best,
I have been on lexapro in the past and actually lost weight,i found it a good med to be on at the time.
You wont feel the full effect of it working for upto 1month,and you may experience some mild side effects at the start but they will subside once your body gets used to the med. It is an easy med to get used to and you should adjust to it quickly.Your doc may decide to increase the dose if the 10mg is not enough for you.
Best of luck with it,
Hi there LexiRox829. Well, as far as weight gain, nothing to report. But, (theres alway a but isn't there?) :-0) It left me feeling very tired. No matter what time of the day, I would take it, even if taken at bedtime, I'd wake up feeling fatiqued. so, I stopped taking it. Otherwise, it was a fairly good med to be on.
i have taken just about every depression med there is ... except but a few//////but ive been taking lexapro for 3 years an it has helped me alot i no when i miss 2 doses because i start feeling very funny like my brain is floating around in my head an i feel very fuzzy headed ... so i try not to forget to take it... but out of every depress med ive took this is the best one ... no weight gain no fatiuge nothing... i hope it works for you ... good luck
