... the past 6 years. I've gained weight, have no libido and feel emotionally numb. Has anyone been on or heard of an anti-anxiety med without terrible side effects? Thank you!!!
Hi all, I'm a new member seeking advice from my fellow anxiety sufferers. I'm on lexapro 20 mg for?

I'm also about to come down slowly off lexapro using the liquid generic version so I can taper very slowly and at small increments. Hoping side effects won't be as bad?!
Honey I don't think such a medicine exist. All meds have side effects. I take trazodone and sometimes Zoloft. I don't have any side effects but that's just me. I used to take an anxiety med that worked great. Especially for on the spot relief but its a controlled substance and habit forming. Talk to your doctor about something different. Ask your pharmacist for information about meds and their side effects. Between the 3 of y'all you're bound to find a med that's right for you.
