Has anyone else experienced the s/e of Paresthesia with Lexapro(prickly feeling in hands sometimes with little red dots), and at what mg? I have just begun to experience it at 30 mg, which in a way is a good sign to me, as it makes me feel the lexapro is going "deep enough" or whatever to get to the areas needing attention; it was only after I got Paresthesia on Paxil that I began to see signs of improvement in my mood and relief from my obsessive introspection. So, anyway, I'm encouraged, and if you get the Paresthesia, don't worry about it; it's a fairly typical side effect, as I understand it, and it's not painful. It's only troublesome if you have no expectation of it and don't know what it is.
