ok so its been 2.5 weeks on lexapro and here is my input so far. i figured it would be easier to track the ups and downs on one thread.
things i like about lexapro:
1.the binge eating is gone. i get full and dont want to eat anymore after a meal.
2. my carb craving is gone
3. i dont get anxiety on the freeways anymore
4. i leave the house more.
things i dont like about lexapro:
1. the jaw clenching during sleep
2. being SUPER sleepy in the morning
3. after about 2 hours from taking the med, i get a twitchy type of feeling
4. i feel real lethargic, even though im more active. does that make sense? i dont mind leaving the house, but i dont have the energy or desire to exercise.
5. im finally aware physically of the weight i have gained on prozac and i feel gross and unattractive now.
