I've never taken Lexapro but antidepressants can mess with your sex life, however, you should speak with your doctor regarding this as there may be some antidepressant that do not cause sexual issues. If you are feeling anxiety perhaps you need to go back on an antidepressant. The Lexapro should be out of your system now so I don't believe there should be any issues with witdrawal. I really suggest you get back with your doctor.
