I have been takin lexapro for about 3 weeks now and had some side effects in the first week such as palpitations and a bit of increased anxiety but these went after a week and it wasnt anything I couldn't not deal with which suprised me. My doc told me that lexapro is good for fewer side effects but I suppose everyone is different. In my opinion, its the best one Ive found so far.
Good Luck and keep in touch.
Take care and god bless,
