> Recumbent and Wildflower,
> Can you please let us know what the side effects you experienced the first few weeks while on Lexapro? You both mentioned they went away though, right?
> I might be starting Lexapro tomorrow and I am wondering what I should look for. I have had pretty bad experiences with AD's so far when I start them and always end up stopping them because they are unbearable (increased depression, increased anxiety, suicidal thoughts that come out of no where when I had not had them to begin with)
> Thanks

I do NOT want to scare anyone...this is what I experience starting @5mg:

Nausea, diahrea, loss of appetite, weight loss, insomnia AND sleeping way too much, lethargy, blurred vision, migraine-like headaches, sweaty arm pits, itchy rash on back and arms, bubble-head, dizziness, shakes when exerting myself, feeling out of breath, jaw clenching, anorgasmia, unable to concentrate or make decisions, called in sick to work whole second week w/flu-like symptoms and spent the whole week on the couch or in bed, anxiety attacks, increased depression, and I'm sure there are a few more that I'm forgetting.

HOWEVER, the GOOD news is all that has gone away, only thing I still notice is occasional mild clenching. Hang in there and it WILL get better!!!~~~8|8
