just started lexapro last night and today have had a horrible headache - also on cycle though so maybe it's just a coincidence although headache is worse than usual but also had alot of anxiety tension this weekend too. 
i just know it can be a side affect - if anyone else experienced this - how long did it last?  not sure how long to give it a chance - this headache HURTS!  it's in the back of my neck and head.  grrrrrrr  can i just feel normal again?  i'm trying - exercising and eating right.  hopefully it will catch up with me and i'll start to feel the results.  ugh

Hey ,

I think you are in the situation i faced one month ago this makes really worse a migraine headache is a severe, intense, throbbing pain felt on one, and sometimes, both sides of the head. The pain is mostly in the front around the temples or behind one eye or ear. Besides pain, other migraine symptoms may include nausea and vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound. Migraine pain can last a few hours or up to one or two days.
