> I have been on Lex for a week now and I am sleepy all the time. I am taking it at night, but I am still incredibly drowsy when I wake up. Today I took a two hour nap and was still sleepy. Did anyone else experience this and did it go away eventually?

This is very common and one of the biggest complaints with lexapro. I had to have my dose lowered to deal with it. When I was no longer tired it was moved back up. Also insomnia is a common side effect. 8 months later I am sleeping better than I ever have. Ive suffered insomnia all my life. So this is a welcomed relief.
