Hey guys - my doctor is about to start me on lexapro , and I just wanted to know your experience with it!! Currently I’m on Quetiapine and Wellbutrin, but my anger issues and anxiety have been seemingly getting worse lately, so my doctor thinks this will help along with an increase to my Quetiapine - Did you guys have positive experiences with it?

Headache

Quetiapine

Anxiety (Including GAD)

Depression

Escitalopram

    lexapro works great for me! the only thing i would warn you of is that my body went through an adjustment phase where i was shaking and had horrible headaches and stomach aches. it lasted about four days and then went away completely.

    Lexapro is one of the medicines you must take every day or else you will feel physical withdrawal effects (mentioned above by daydream.elf). Be careful not to skip a day, and if you ever do, you'll know that's what the brain zaps etc are from. Good luck! 💕

    I felt so happy on Lexapro! However, it made me sooo sleepy, like sleeping 16 hours a day, so I had to stop. But I don't think that's common. I was also seeking to treat anger issues and anxiety, as well as depression, and what ultimately worked for me was Zoloft.

    Lexapro has been the best one I have found for myself! It seriously made a difference. Wellbutrin was awful

    I was on Zoloft but Lexapro has been better for my anxiety and depression, besides the initial effects. I’m still a work in progress but feel better since the meds switched. Everyone is different though.

    Personally, Lexapro doesn't do that much for me besides giving me a sleep schedule and an appetite, but i think that since you're also taking Wellbutrin it should do more possibly. Good luck <3

    Lexapro literally changed my life, but I had never tried any other SSRIs before so idk if that affects anything. I have no bad side effects from it and it has helped my stress and anxiety soooooo much.
