Hi acollins,
Welcome to HealingWell! :-)
I have never taken Lotronex or Lexapro... I just wanted to welcome you to the site.
I would like to ask, however, what sort of side effects from Lexapro are you worried about? From everything I have read, it seems the risk of taking Lotronex is far more risky than Lexapro.
You know, you might find people on the Anxiety or Depression forum that can tell you about their experience with Lexapro. I know you're asking about Lotronex, but I thought maybe you could get more info about your fears regarding Lexapro too.
Good luck! I hope someone will come along shortly who can help you.
