So far, on the Lexapro, no weight loss, no weight gain not from the meds anyway. I usually make it thru the weed ok but its the weekends when I end up breaking down with "episodes" of non stop crying and end up drinking and calling my ex which is what pushed my anxiety and depression into full gear again.
I am trying to get off the lexapro and still take Klonopin as a prn. Any help and comments will be greatly appreciated.

A number of things can cause them. If the dose is increased to 20 mg, this should occur after a minimum of three weeks. Renal function Patient advice: If the dose is increased to 20 mg, this should occur after a minimum of one week.
Is there a withdrawal period, or do you just stop taking Lexapro? Hi, I take 30mg of citalopram it has helped a lot but I am still suffering with really bad lows, I also take mg of Dosulepin.
Almost like your brain got shocked and is resetting itself and some upset stomach. I honestly noticed nothing at all 10mg. Unfortunately I was not one of them. Do not start Lexapro in a patient who is being treated with linezolid or intravenous methylene blue because there is an increased risk of serotonin syndrome. If intolerable symptoms occur following a decrease in the dose or upon discontinuation of treatment, then resuming the previously prescribed dose may be considered.
I'm now learning meditation, CBT and looking after my physical health so I can wean off the drug later in the year when I'm mentally ready for it". Lexapro escitalopram is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor SSRI antidepressant used to treat major depressive disorder and generalized anxiety disorder. Patients should contact their healthcare provider for any changes in their medical condition, including unusual weight gain.
I noticed that quite quickly days my GAD lessoned but also my drive for just about everything else lessoned as well and I started drinking very heavily almost every night. I rarely depend on my Xanax for my anxiety anymore. In general they are usually harmless from what I have learned, but it doesn't hurt to get things checked out if you get worried. I started at 10 mg about two years ago.
I constantly yawned all day long. Lexapro takes about for to six weeks to work, and it does take time when you up the dosage. Physicians generally choose an antidepressant for a particular patient based upon factors such as side effects for that particular patient, costs, and positive mindset. All side effects gone, and normal feelings of happiness are in my heart.
Both were extremely healthy, active and at a healthy weight until they were placed on this medication. I did notice what seemed like a drop off in the effect of the Lexapro a few weeks ago and began taking it with a good folic acid capsule.
