Postpartum Depression

Lexapro (Escitalopram)

Hi Ladies

I have just been put on Escitalopram (the generic of lexapro) for anxiety, and I am just trying to get a feel for the drug before I take it. If you have taken it would you mind sharing your experience?

My biggest fear is the feeling of no emotion (just walking through life, going through the motions). Did you have diarrhea, vomiting, weight gain?

I have been perscribed a very low dose (10mg), and I am instructed to take half a tablet for the first 5 days. I feel like I need something just to take the edge off, but I still want to feel like myself and not a zombie.

Thank you for sharing
