I was taking Lexapro for about ninety days and within this time I gained about ten to twelve pounds. When my prescription ran out I decided that I would try my luck at no anti-depressant medication, seeing as how I do not like the weight gain factor. I stopped taking Lexapro about three weeks ago and it has been rough to say the least. I have had so many unwelcome symptoms such as nausea, fatigue, extreme light-headed/ dizziness, no energy, etc. etc. The list goes on and on. My doctor told me that because Lexapro works on Serotonin, the main neurotransmitter associated with bowel function, these symptoms are normal and could hang around for a while..... has anyone else had this experience or know what I can do to get through this?? I feel completely miserable and on top of that I think I will have to start up a new anti-depressant..... but not Lexapro. Any suggestions on meds that do not cause weight gain? Any feedback would be much appreciated.
