Is anyone here on Lexapro?

I just started taken the medication for depression Monday and was curious at what others have experienced with it. Yesterday I got really tired and woke up really energetic, today I don't feel tired at all. I know it takes tiem for the medicine to get in your system. Anyone else has experience with Lexapro?

  • I used to be on it, it worked for a while. It didn't end up making me anymore happy, just more determined. More focused.
    I hope it works out well for you

  • I took it for a while. It helped some but the longer i was on it the less it worked after a couple years I switched to paxil and it works much better. Hope you feel better soon!

  • Yes I was on it for a long time,and I loved it,I felt so much better on it,and I have tried about everything out there,but I had been really achy with my depression,so I was switched to Cymbalta,and is working just as well.Lexapro also has no weight gain with it.Good Luck,and I hope it works as well for you.
