Muscle Pain with escitalopram/Lexapro anyone?

Posted by mtom on January 13, 2019, at 11:20:08

Since starting escitalopram several months ago I've been experiencing muscle pain during the night, severe enough to wake me and disrupt my sleep. I think I have read this is a possible side-effect. I take my dose late evening after dinner. Pain seems to start a halfway through the night, diminishes during the day. Tylenol doesn't seem to help and my doctors are reluctant to prescribe NSAIDS (which do work better) due to possible interactions (e.g. bleeding, etc.) with SSRI's and other medications I take.
Any thoughts? Have others experienced this muscle pain?
