Hi,i have been on lexapro now for 5 wks.I am just now starting to feel aliitle more normal.I also take .5 adavan to help me sleep or get me threw an anxiety attack.I'm on 10mg of the lex.And some of the side effects from it are the things that you are explaining.It takes 4 to 6wks to fully get into your system and feel the better effects of this med.as with any SSRI.How long have you been takeing it?Are you on anything else to help you?I say give it some more time.Best wishes to you.Keep us posted.
