The side effects that I have experieced are as follows: cognitive--forgetting my students names/words to my daughters bedtime songs (delayed remembering); Numbness/tingling--fingers/feet and toes (so glad it's not my lips, knock on wood, I'm a musician); sexual--increased drive (which is quite a change from "don't touch me or even look at me"); Appetite--carbination makes me gag and I crave water. Lexapro seems to be working great for me. So far the combination has worked well but I've only been taking the medication for a few weeks. Thanks for the response!
