I have been on celexa 30 mg for about 2 years and klonopin 0.75 mg for about 2 years as well taken at night for insomnia. I take the klonopin for insomnia. I am switching to Lexapro in hope of it allievating the anxiety, depression, and klonopin. My doctor is switching me straight from Celexa to Lexapro no weening off as he said they are in the same class. Today has been my first day on 15 mg of Lexapro and I have a major headache and am so drowsy and out of it. How long until this goes away? I am scared that I am going to be continuously drowsy and tired. Additionally what time of the day is best for the Lexapro? Has anyone gotten good results of feeling great and energised during the day from this drug and also having this drug getting rid of their insomnia, or sleeping well throughout the night? Thanks so much!
Melanie: This can happen whenever they change the medication and if you can take Tylenol generic there is no interaction between them and see how your headache is after a while It has worked for me many times. ok at the most any of these side effects when they make a dose change or drug change in most cases can last for 1 to 2 weeks but being these are in the same family of drug I don't think it well last that long. If it was me I would continue to take it at the same time the drowsiness should go away. This way your not having to take the Klonopin and the Lexapro at the same time. But most people after the first week or so the drowsiness and other side effects go away.Try and stick with it and see if the Generic Tylenol well help the headaches if you need it. You should be just fine in just a few days to a week or so.And most have had more luck with Lexapro in the long run so it is surely worth a try. Chuck1957
