Oh yea!! I worked really good but it made me sleepy, I could have slept all day if I had the oppourtunity. I was having panic attacks in my sleep which would case me to wake up constantly and then I would get depressed from the lack of sleep, so the being sleepy on the Lexapro did not bother me because I was finally able to sleep. Try taking it at night before you go to sleep. That might help because if you take it in the morning, it will make you tired all day, but if you take it at night you might sleep off the tired feeling and have more energy in the day. Also, when I weaned off the Lexapro, I took me about a month and a half and I had no side effects during the weaning process. Just don't stop cold turkey. If or when you try to wean off, I can give some good pointers on the process.
