i am afraid to fill it because of all of the side effects. It seems to me a patient is on the drug and it does not work the discontinuance of the drug is difficult and causes some severe withdrawal symptoms.
Many people find lexapro a great med,i was on it myself before for a long time and it worked well and i was able to come off it without any difficultly.
Everyone reacts to meds in a different way and the side effects are minimal with this med,if you experience some,they will be mild and will go away within a few days,some do not experience any side effects while starting this.
You were prescribed this,so you should give it a try at least,you wont know until you try and if the side effects are unbearable go back to your gp and explain the situation to him/her.
Hope this helps
Best of luck with it and hope you feel better soon
