Hey guys,
I've been very slowly starting Lexapro (1/2 10 mg tabs) since last week and I am extremely tired but I don't know if it's the medication causing it???  If anyone call tell me about their experiences, it would be a huge help for me.

I read somewhere about lexapro inducing mania. I took it for a month and my pdoc pulled me off it. I thought I was feeling good, lol!

How you doing, Mogli?

I was on Lexapro for a while. I didn't have many more symptoms on it than I did on any other AD. It helped with my depression, it gave me brain zaps if I missed a dose (yuck). I hope it works for you! You deserve a break.
