  • I was on Lexapro for three months, and it turned me into the walking dead! I didn't care about anything, I let my housework go, and my relationship with my husband even suffered because of it. I felt tired and droopy all the time, and all I wanted to do was sleep. I lost weight because I didn't even want to bother with eating. I wouldn't recommend that stuff to anyone!

  • Well the benifits of this medication are working great for me. I have more pep, im not tired at all, my emotions are more even kiltered. But the problem i am having is with a side effect known as anorgasmia. Im sure you can figure out what this means. But it is the only side effect. I did horrible on about fifty different seratonin drugs. This one works but this one little side effect is almost making it unbearable. My doctor wants me to weigh the pros and cons and decide if i want to stay on it or not. has anyone else had this problem

  • I did have that problem, but I have it with all anti-depressants. TMI alert: I have to use a vibrator while we're having sex. It's the only thing that works.
