>>>>>i grind my teeth at night, even tho i sleep really well for the first time in years.

I grinded my teeth and clenched my jaw in the early days of starting Lexapro. I still clench my jaw at times, but not as much and I catch myself to stop it. The grinding has passed , I hope it does for you too:-)

>>>>>i have also gained a steady 5 lbs a month since taking this medication. my new psych says these problems are not side effects of this medication, but i am not sure.

I hear you!! I have gained about a steady 6 pounds since starting this med. Some psychiatrists have said 'it's not from the med' about most of the meds I have been on concerning any bad side effects I have gotten. Sometimes they don't know, they're not perfect, but a good one will work with your concerns.
Weight gain for me happened on Prozac when I took it, and I think it could be that the anti-depressants make one feel better, thus, increasing one's appetite, due to being poor in the first place, due to being depressed.
But also, I really think these meds have a direct impact on our metabolisms, that's just my opinion though.

>>>>>any ideas or similar experiences?

Hope this helped,
Hang in there, Lexapro has really helpled me, I wish you the best,
