Re: Lexapro-Feeling tired and drowsy.

In reply to Lexapro-Feeling tired and drowsy., posted by BTR on May 21, 2004, at 10:23:03

> I have been on 10 mg's. of Lex for the past 3 weeks. I feel fatigued throughout the day and a little out of it mentally. My pdoc just had me increase my dosage to 15 mg's. daily yesterday. I was taking the Lex in the morning but have started taking it in the evening, made that change about 3 days ago.
> I have been diagnosed with Major Depression and Anxiety Disorder. I also take about 1 mg. of Klonopin daily. FYI-I was on Celexa for about a year and felt great but it just stopped working. Any suggestions or help from anyone who has experienced these SE's would be appreciated. Thanks!

I experienced that tired drowsy feeling when I started taxing Lexapro so I started taking it in the evening. After a couple of weeks, I switched back to taking it in the morning and have had no problems since. I think it is just part of the initial part of getting used to the drug. You might want to try that and then switch back to taking it in the morning and see how that does.

Good luck!
