Hi, Dad! Yes, these can be side effects when initiating therapy with Lexapro (and most other antidepressant/anxiolytics):
Common (1% to 10% of users): Abnormal dreams, agitation, anxiety, nervousness, restlessness, confusion"
"Side effects have been reported to be generally mild and transient. They are most common during the first 2 weeks of treatment and decrease in intensity and frequency with continued treatment. They generally do not lead to treatment cessation."
Best regards, Wildcat
