I'ts probably a symptom of your anxiety as opposed to something the medication is doing to you. I've been in your shoes before worrying about what a medication is doing to me and it always turned out to be that I was creating these symptoms with my own anxiety. So try and relax, and know that in a few days, you'll feel better.
Hi Scotty I take Lexapro and have never had that sensation .How much are you taking ? I know I had to cutback at first becaue of that amp ! feeling..Its a good antidepressant as it is one of the mild ones and I believe it targets only two SRI `s instead of three like Efexor or paxil . I agree with ACG33 that it may at first make you a little more anxious .Hang in there ! Do you have any klonipin or Xannax ? Jim
It shouldnt be the medicine. Taking it one time shouldnt give you any side effects at all yet. It takes up to 2 weeks to fully get into your blood stream.
I started Lexapro 5mg last night and about an hour after my hands felt hot. Woke up to hot flashing. Face, arms, hands etc HOT and sweating. Ive never had hot flashes. Ive read this morning that ALOT of people have this and when they go off. Some people said it only lasts for a few weeks, some say doesnt go away. Youre not alone. My doctor didnt mention this at all. I take for GAD and panic disorder, gonna stick with it and see. Good luck
