I am currently taking 50 m zoloft but talked to my Dr about it because it tottally wipes out  my sex drive.  He suggested I switch to Lexapro.  Said it works just as good if not better for anxiety with less side effects.  Anyone have expirience with this?

It is worth a try but I think it may depend on each individual how they react to the med. I am sure others will have information for you. :)

Hey TheLori,

I am having the same problem on zoloft and I have a close friend who has taken both and she said she preferred the Lexapro to the Zoloft. She said she barely had any side effect on it and it made her feel like a normal person. I was thinking of switching also. I go to the doctor in a few days and I'm going to see what he says. Let me know if you switch and if you notice a difference.
