hey everyone.
so i have been taking 10 mg of lexapro (cypralex) for almost three weeks for anxiety and depression.
i'm 18 years old, and ive been missing school constantly and not really doing much anymore.
i get out when i can but i suffer from other things as well and i often don't feel wel.
anyway, i deat with a few side affects like nausea and head aches for the first week or so but those seem to be gone now.
i get night sweats though almost every night, and i was curious what effects others have had to this medication.
i don't really know if it is helping yet. it's hard to say, but my mom thinks i am spending a lot more time alone since i've been on it,
i haven't really noticed that but it's hard to speak for myself right now.
i just want to feel not so sad and motivated, and i really wish this medication would help :(
thanks for reading everyone.
let me know what your side effects are if you take this medication!

hey, lexapro, for some is known to cause side-effects, all pretty much do, it is just the severity it has on the individual that is of concern. i have tried it, wasn't for me, esp the brain zaps. i would still the lexapro a chance, in essence it is a very good a/d, but some people are adverse to the side-effects. most meds will give similar side-effects in the first few weeks, just your body getting use to it. a new course of medication-for the theraputic element to kick in is around six weeks. ofcourse if your symptoms are continuing please consultant your general practioner. check the label in the pack, these will inform of what symptoms are mild to common and those that need you need to be stringent with.
