I take effexor. It is a close cousin to lexapro. And I don't have any side effects. I think the only time I had bad brain zaps is when I tried to go off of it. I did go off of it but realized that I needed it. So I have been on it for years.
I hope that the lexapro works good for you. And was stated above, meditation really helps with anxiety. And it lets us know that we are in control of our minds and bodies. I think you would benefit from that. Also it is great that you are starting therapy. I have been going for years and it has really helped me a lot. So that is good that you are going. Let us know how everything comes out. And keep posting. There are a lot of wonderful members here.
