Anyone taking lexapro?
January 4, 2007 6:37am CST
I recently went to the doctors because of menopausal symptoms, you know ladies, hot flashes, night sweats, anxiety, and heart palpatations. They refused to put me on estrogen becauses they said I need a mammogram and pap. Instead they said they had something that would work just as good. One day after taking the full dose I was prescribed I got so lethargic I couldnt function. Just wanted to lie down all the time. Has anyone else had a bad experience with lexapro?

I have been taking Lexapro for about 3 years for a panic disorder. It does cause me to be lethargic but not as bad as Paxil did. I also gained weight. I have found that making sure I eat healthy,drink alot of water and forcing myself to exercise has helped with this. The Lexapro really helps with controlling the anxiety but it is a battle to win over the low energy level caused by it.
