 2  Depression (bipolar 2) Constipation - painful, extreme, and constant Weight gain - 20 pounds total in 6 months Appetite increase - hard to resist eating even while getting fatter I don't know if Lexapro helps with depression. I couldn't tell. I tried it because my bipolar manifests as depression for the winter months. All that changed was that I got fat and unable to poop, neither a known depression cure. It left me just as sad, only bigger and full of poop. F 37 6 months

 4  bi-polar II none except for lack of excitement about anything. I get very mean/hateful, imagine things like people talking about me if I don't take them I am totally normal on them and I don't need a high dose. I have suffered the worse then death withdraws. But, I don't really care to do anything, clean the house, travel, have a party while taking them. Although I don't care to do anything. When I absolutely force myself, I am always pleased I did. I have thought I could come off of them and would taper and suffer the withdrawal process. Only to find out I shouldn't. F 65 25 years

 1  depression after renal cell CA I went into tardive dyskinesia after the second increased dose of 20mg and then serotonin syndrome for 18 months that required hospitalization initially. I was then unable to work or concentrate. Retrospectively I would have been pleased to be just depressed. It was a life changing experience on top of my cancer diagnosis. I am still taking anti-seizure meds and am on disability due to my inability to perform ICU nursing anymore. M 63 3 months

 1  Anxiety extreme sleepiness/lethargy, panic The moment I took it I got sleepy... and the sleepiness never went away for as long as I was taking it. I could barely leave bed, much less leave the house, and it was just miserable. This caused some panic. It did seem to help reduce the anxiety for a bit, but it caused more anxiety than it helped. I've taken SSRIs before, and have never had side effects like this. M 38 3 days

 5  gen. anxiety & obsessive thinking The 1st week or so I had mild gastro issues and sometimes mild headache but nothing unbearable. Also decrease in libido but has since gotten better in last couple weeks. I started taking Deer Antler Velvet extract to help with Libido and it's really helped! I asked my doctor to take this med after research I'd done and talking with several co-workers and friends who take it. My doctor prescribed 10mg daily but i started with 5mg and it has worked great! Think I will stay at 5mg for now at least. It has almost completely stopped my obsessive thoughts that I've struggled with my entire life and my general anxiety level is down too! Overall I feel much better and sleep much better too. I am happy I stuck with it...Oh and another benefit is I've lost 14 lbs in 28 days!!...which I needed to do anyway. Lexapro really helped curb my appetite, particularly for bad foods like sugars, processed carbs, etc...Rarely even crave them now. :)...PS. I am taking a generic form of Lexapro. M 41 1 months

This medicine has saved my life. I have finally left my marriage, regained my confidence and will to live. I see hope for my future, am more social than ever and feel happy for the first time in years. With a strict exercise regimen, I have also managed to lose weight on my already small frame.

 5  Anxiety, depression, BPD tiredness and dizziness, nausea, spaced out feeling and lack of concentration as well as a bit of memory loss, feeling almost as if I am "buzzed" or "euphoric" and slight ringing in the ears. I just started taking lexapro after having my 2nd child and I must say, given the side effects I am having, my anxiety and depression have decreased so far and my anger has fizzled. I can't be strict with my daughter when she misbehaves because I always end up laughing or giggling lol! It seems like nothing can get me mad or upset and this is the exact effect that I wanted as well as my anxiety and depression under control and my mood stabilizing. I do feel numb at times, like I don't feel anything at all, but it isn't necessarily a bad thing compared to being as over emotional as I was. I do feel extremely tired, but nothing a cup of coffee can't fix lol, and I do have some memory loss, or a hard time remembering, as well as difficulty concentrating, but again it's nothing even close to being unbearable or anything serious. Hopefully my side effects like my dizziness and ringing in the ears (when it does occur) subside, but other than that I am doing well!! No wanting to hurt myself or have as many negative thoughts as before. I feel in control for once and I feel like I am living normally. Definitely a recommended medication! F 24 5 days

 5  anxiety First let me say that I started out on 2.5mgs at night for 2 weeks, then went to 5mgs which I am still at, the 5 mgs are in the morning. I have been on a total of 5wks the 1st four I had insomnia so I took 1/2 Ativan at night to help with sleep but would still wake after 4 hours, now at week 5 I cant imagine life with out it. I have a fabulous Dr. who says if 5mgs works for me then that is my therapeutic dose, hang in and start low, I tried it years ago at too high a dose and absolutely hated it. Just never give up, I personally think that all meds are started at too high a dose , your body needs time to adjust, I hope you find what works for you......... F 58 5 weeks

Also experienced nausea, insomnia and the desire to sleep all day (in part at least because of the insomnia, I guess.) I could have put up with these, just not the headaches. I was really hoping that this was my miracle after celexa stopped working after a while. My doctor told me that this drug had less side effects than celexa. Definitely not the case for me.

 1  doctor said it'd help anxiety waking up every 2 minutes to pee, severe tooth grinding during sleep, nightmares, very agitated, psychosis, MADE ME WANT TO JUMP OUT OF MY SKIN! My hands and feet were POURING out sweat all day long, I couldn't concentrate on anything and I could not sit still at all! Anybody remember drug education back in school, where the teacher mentioned a "bad trip"? That's what this vile crap was! A very scary bad trip...yet it wasn't an illegal street drug...a doctor prescribed this! It was expensive and it made my already severe overwhelming anxiety 100x worse! I see what they mean about the warnings of suicide ideation. I was starting to think about it too, as it was the only way to escape being trapped in my extremely agitated body. This stuff is EVIL!!! I cold turkeyed off after 2 days of hell (the 2nd day made the 1st day on it look like a picnic) and felt extra anxiety waiting for that poison to clear my system. If I could give it a zero or negative rating, I would've. F 42 2 days

 2  depression numb or if I'm emotionional my feelings are exasperated more so than are normal Be very careful in weaning yourself off , do not stop medicine all at once taper off the medicine slowly . When I tried to stop the medicine cold turkey I had highened roller coaster feeling of depression,suicide,and anxiety to the point that I felt like I thought I was losing my mind --I was unable to control my thoughts or behavior , in my opionion this is a dangerous drug and it is a drug. Try exercising, eating properly,taking vitamins, because the foods now are so depleted of nutrients, and get the right amount of sleep. check out this site for any drug info cchr.org or check out Gwen Olsen ie rx drug pusher, this person is an ex-drug rep. who can tell who the history and the relationsihp between the pharmaceutical companies , doctors, and the FDA and how they only treat the symptoms and side effects of dieases and don't want to find cures , etc ---it is a money making machine they have going. --try to find an intergrative doctor who looks at all resources and not just use drugs to cover up symptoms but treat the whole person F 58 13 days

 4  depression, anxiety for the first 2 days on 5mg i had the runs and felt apathetic and not myself. but since then i feel very good, not one argument with my husband, no tears at all and also no PMS.. i think it helped to turn me into a happier more normal person and i plan to continue taking it. maybe i will increase the dose because i do still get anxious at times, but i also meditate to deal with that which helps. overall lexapro has been a lifesaver as i was even having suicidal thoughts previously. btw my libido kind of dissappeared but its actually good because now i match my husbands sex drive. i rather be happy and 'sexless' than miserable and horny.

 5  PTSD Dry mouth. Insomnia and suicidal thoughts the first few weeks until the medication got stabilised. All in all, the medication worked wonders in combination with prolonged exposure therapy to rid me of my PTSD and calm me down. I am no longer anxious, and after just two days on the medication I felt brave enough to go outside in a crowded mall. Been diagnosed with Bipolar disorder since, but it works great for angst.

 5  Major Depression/GAD/Panic Disorder At first I had vivid dreams and some insomnia, there were a couple of times I woke up sweating and felt faint, but it went away after a day or so. I love this drug. I've taken over 20 different drugs (no exaggeration) and this has been a STAPLE in my life. I've had treatment resistant depression, mood issues, anxiety, and this has been the one that has built a foundation for me and helped me immensely. I would try other drugs but always go back to this because it really helps keep my anxiety and depression at bay. I am also on Lamictal (which has been god sent as well) with the Lexapro and it does wonders for me. F 25 5 years

 1  trouble breathing vomitting and other symptoms. Later: overactive immune system and inflammation. SSRIs are suicide pills - you probably die. Discontinued after 1 day. Dry mouth, near nose bleeds and other symptoms after 3-4 weeks. Went to a really big hospital emergency room where they gave me some pills that helped. However, later they send me to psychiatry where they gave me zyprexa. After 8 weeks trouble breathing symptoms has became back (dysautonomia?) and I have had trouble sleeping during nights - this may be because of overactive immune system or inflammation or something going wrong with your liver or otherwise (overactive immune system): reduced blood coagulation (theory?).

Don't take this drug if you are a man, it will ruin your life. There were no benefits of taking this drug, it did not make me feel less depressed about my life or less anxious, just kind of numb and that was about it.

 3  Post partum anxiety Lexapro helped me after giving birth to both my children. I have extreme baby blues and needed something to help my mind from racing like crazy. Normally in life I am fine and this has been the only times I have needed an antidepressant. The side effects I experienced were feeling a little zombie ish, my memory wasn't as good and I didn't have any emotion. I am someone who cries at the drop of a pin, but couldn't even work up a tear while on lexapro. I went off of it starting at 6 months post partum and was done by 7 months. It was not difficult to go off of it. It was a life saver for what I needed it to be, but I would never stay on it long term. F 30 7 months

 1  Depression (supposedly), fatigue Initially vivid dreams. Delayed ejaculation and eventually erectile disfunction although it may have been age (50) that bought that on. Coming off the drug produced lightheadedness, 'brain zaps' or resets, sleep issues, mood swings. Advice for mildly depressed persons or those (and their doctors) who cant put a finger on what is wrong with them. Don't take these drugs unless you have exausted all avenues to find out what is wrong. This includes counselling as well as general health issues and diet etc. I believe that my erectile disfunction is due to years of Lexapro use. My problem was partially fixed by Testosterone therapy using Reandron. I really recommend this treatment for middle aged men who are lacking drive but, you have to register a low blood testosterone level to get it in Australia. M 56 3 years

 2  depression/social anxiety grinding teeth (doing it right now), possible very mild weight gain (not sure I can attribute this to the drug), depression (ha), totally numb, anorgasmia (first few days only), suicidality I feel like I want to die about half the time. I started off at 10mg and when it stopped working I went up to 20mg and it started working again. Now it's stopped again. I think stress is what causes the problem, but being a college student I don't know how to avoid that. But seriously. I want to die. Between being depressed for years, and then taking this drug, I still have not found much happiness. When I am okay, it is just a numb sort of happiness. I don't socialize with people anymore, really. I am amazed I even have a boyfriend. I'm just numb, barely even there. I feel on the verge of insanity. I keep hoping I'll get hit by a bus or something. I'm honestly not sure whether I was better off or on this drug... the depression was horrible and unbearable. This is more mild, but I'm still SO numb, I've lost most of my sense of self. So really, why not just die already? At least I can smile now, sometimes. M 21 3 years

I started this six months ago amidst a battle with depression, in addition to having bulimia and trichotillomania. My weight issues have almost COMPLETELY disappeared (within weeks I saw differences) and the urge to pull my hair has dwindled. I lost my mother three months ago, and I don't know what I would have done if I weren't already on Escitalopram.No urge to return to my old habits despite my unbelievable stress level.

 5  seasonal depression reduced sex drive, weak / delayed orgasms. This might sound weird but I have become too "nice" while taking this medicine, I lost my edginess and aggression. Insomnia at times. Workouts are a forced issue, not enjoyable. Without question this medicine ended my depression. I have been much happier and easier to live with. However the price you pay, is the range of normal emotions is reduced, you are "in the middle" all the time, unable to experience euphoria on the one extreme or anger at the other extreme. I have stopped taking this medication a couple times and went into a profound depression both times and went off on family members at the slightest provocation. So i'll stick with it, for now...
