... along with Seroquel due to anxiety and not being able to sleep. My sleep has gone backwards again so I'm going back on Lexapro. Will this help with my sleep eventually (I'm not going back on to Seroquel) and will it cause weight gain? The Seroquel caused weight gain last time but I'm not sure if the Lexapro did or not
cherrrub; I agree with everything Janie has said, This happens to a lot of people they think they are doing much better and stop the medications, Only for their problems to come back.So just remember when you start the Lexapro sometimes things get worse the first couple of weeks,Then slowly they start getting better until you're at the peak level which can be as much as 6 to 8 weeks for some people And take it about the same time each day and stay on it. If by chance in a week or two your sleep is still a problem give your doctor a call and have them give you something else to take to work with the Lexapro there are a lot of options other than Seroquel.
