Hi all,
 
Has anyone increased their medication Lexapro from 10mg to 20mg?  If so, what changes have you felt?  Anything different with weight gain or tiredness?
 
My doctor suggested I increase to 20 mg, however, I am apprenhensive because of the weight gain.  But I really don't have any motivation at 10 mg.  Can anyone go into detail for me about Lexapro.  Thanks so much
 
Judy

Hi there,

I don't take lexapro at all, I take effexor which is suppost to be a close cousin.

Hopefully somebody will come along with some advice for you. I imagine you need to give it time and see what happens. Sadly a lot of medications do cause weight gain. But we can counteract that with diet and exercise.

Good luck, keep posting.

hugs, Karen...

I used Laxapro and increased from 10 mg to 20 mg and really do not remember any side effects but this med did not work for me. :-)
