I was on Lexapro and for the first few days I was pretty nauseous and had no appetite whatsoever, but I was glad about
it because I was also on prednisone and it was nice to have a break from my ravenous appetite. Also, my pupils were dilated for the first week, and I could NOT stop yawning! I really felt Lexapro worked for me, but when I ran out of sample packs, we discovered that my insurance didn't cover it so my doctor switched me to Citalopram, which is the generic Celexa. I do not feel this is nearly as effective for me and I'm pretty bummed out about
it because I feel like I'm back at square one now.
But yeah, I would say hang in there and give it as much of a chance as you can, and if after a few weeks it really doesn't seem to be helping then you should go to your doctor and discuss other options. That's what I'm doing Monday :/
