I take Lexapro, and have for several years with excellent results.  I'm not sure if you're taking it, or thinking about taking it.  If you're already taking it, then contact your doctor it may be time to tweak the dosage.  If it's been prescribed but you have doubts...don't, try it.  We all react differently to these types of medications, and sometimes it is trial and error as to which one will work best for us.  Keep in mind that it takes 4-6 weeks for it to reach a therapeutic level in your body, so be patient.  Take care.
