  • I took Lexapro and it did NOTHING!!! I found it a waste of my money! And the doctor refused to switch me over to anything else!

  • Every person is different but Lexapro made me feel invinsible for about 2 weeks only to wake up one day wanting to blow my brains out
    I now refuse to take any anti depressant mediation

  • I tokk celexa after having my daughter for PPD and was on it for about a year. Then i had a miscarriage and i got even more depressed so my dr switched me to lexapro and have now been taking it for about 6 months. I didn't really have any side effects from either and both helped a lot. Every person it different so it would be best to let your dr decide which my be best for you. If you don't notice a change within a month you need to go back and tell your dr so they can try something else. GL
