Lexapro has been very good for me

I've been on Lexapro for 10 weeks or so for depression/GAD. I started out on 10mg then went to 20mg after a month and a minor relapse of depression. I have NO complaints at all. This is my first dealing with depression/GAD, so Im no expert. Im also taking Lorazepam 0.5mg 2-3 times/day as needed for anxiety. I began to feel the effects of the Lex after about 3 weeks and the 20mg dose fully kicked in about 3 weeks after that. The side effects are so mild I'm not really sure Im having any. I do notice a little tiredness about mid afternoon (I take the Lex in the AM). I have no trouble sleeping, but I wake up about 1-2 hours earlier than I used to (terminal insomnia I think its called). I notice some tenseness in my neck and upper back but its very mild. I have no GI problems at all. As far as sexual side effects, all I notice is some delayed ejaculation...which isnt such a bad thing when you think about it. Id love to see more posts about people who have had GOOD experiences with Lexapro.
