Is anyone taking or tried lexapro in the past? Do you like it? Any negative side effects? I'm on day 4 10 mg a day I've just noticed it makes me a little sick feeling so I take it a little while before bed.

It made me tired until my body got used to it. It's helped me so much though.

I tried it a few months back.  It calmed me down and made me very quite.  Hubby said he didn't like it because I looked / acted  more depressed.  But, I wasn't.  It just kinda zombified me inward and outward.  I had lots of thoughts, just didn't want to bother verbalizing them.  I don't remember the dosage.  But, my doctor had me start one half a pill for seven days then one whole pill.  I only took it for a month.  I hope this helps.

Lexapro is a very effective antidepressant with a favorable side effect profile.

I took it for 1 month for PPD and anxiety. It worked very well. I had the upset stomach from it too so I took it with a glass of milk right before bed.

I took it a few years ago and it really helped me. The only side effect I experienced was decreased appetite which was a plus for me lol
