I was on the Lexapro and started at 10mg and did not have those side effects, however after 3 weeks it still was not covering my depression and anxiety so I went to 20 mg..............finally gave it up and then ran through a bunch of others.
I am now on Cymbalta at 120mg devided into 2 doses per day. It seems to be working but it may be the combination of the meds I take. I do feel I am a bit overdosed on it and in August my Pdoc and I are going to decide on backing off to 90 mg per day.
Most of the time it will take 4-6 weeks to get the full effect of your med but if you cannot tolerate the side effects please talk to your physician.
