For anyone who has been on Lexapro-
Did you experience sexual side effects from this medication?  I am currently on Wellbutrin b/c it has low chances of sexual side effects but it makes my anxiety worse...  I am getting married in a month and dont want sexual side effects to be a problem, for sure!  So any help on Lexapro would be nice.  Thanks all

Hello Terps19,

Yes Lexapro can have sexual side effects and it did effect me that way when I was on it. Though meds react differently with different people so it may or may not effect you that way.

I wanted ot give you a link to a thread about Lexapro that was started on the Anxiety forum. the name of the Thread: Lexapro link: http://www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=9&m=206974

I hope this info helps

best wishes and congrats on the wedding
