Anyone else get headaches after starting Lexapro?

      Yes definitely but they went away. Try upping your water intake and make sure you're sleeping and eating enough. Adjusting to new meds takes time but in my case it was worth it.

      I took lexapro for about two months and had to be taken off because I had bad side effects. Don’t be afraid to talk to your doctor if you feel it isn’t working for you.

      ^^ I didn’t have headaches specifically but I had awful side affects that went away after a few weeks

      yes totally. i’d be careful with lexapro, it gave me weird side affects. just be aware of how you’re feeling and maybe write it down to share with your psychiatrist. wishing you the best ❤️

      I started taking lexapro about a week ago and got headaches 2 days in a row. After that nothing. I think it depends on your diet and if there is anything missing in your blood in general. ❤️ That is my opinion by the way, I am also aware that headaches are a side effect so it might just be until you get used to the medication.
