> I have been on ten mg. of Lexapro since mid-November. I found I have lost weight. I had gained 50 pounds over the course of my different meds so losing weight is a good thing. I was also drinking alot of beer which I have stopped too. It is not that I don't get hungry, it is that I can control it better now. I think that has to do with the reduction of my depression, not eating all the time for comfort. Before the Lexapro I was on a combination of Celexa and Remeron. I could not go to bed at night without taking a meal with me.
> The issues of weight gain and loss have been discussed quite a bit on this board and you might want to read some of the earlier posts to compare information.
> I reread the research info on Lexapro last night and it was my impression that it was neutral, neither gain nor loss but folks here have all had different experiences.
> Wishing you health.

Thanks fr yr post. Many things over the past few yrs have comtributed to my attacks but i didn't see it clearly until last month when i had trouble getting ready for work. the thought of being late pushed me into major panic. I am terrified of walking on wet/snow and found myself calling in sick on snow days - this winter was brutal. then ofcourse is the ever lingering effects of 9/11 which i never got help for - my office was 2 blocks away and i thought i was dead when the 1st tower came down - never forget the grey - my clothes went in the garbage along with my purse.
I am not sure about being tired - i was before the lex - now on week 3 - but boy am i sleeping better and the horride PMS seems to have gotten better. i did have a whopper of a headache for 3 days - but again, not sure as i have always had them.
I finally told my husband about my panic attacks today but still have not mentioned that i started medication.

I am interesed in other experiences with peoples headaches. Are you haveing mild ones - jsut aspirin or are they stay in bed types?

susan (my nickname)
