I had night sweats with the drug, and I switched from cow's milk to Soy milk. The sweats at night were better, few and far between. I am not as tired and I don't have the weighted down feeling as I do when I drink cow's milk. Soymilk has alot of benefits! You will need to add some protein to your diet too.AnswerYes! The funny thing is, when I looked up this same sypmtom, I found out that excessive sweating is also a sign of Lexapro withdrawal.

I'm going to get myself off of this stuff ASAP (you can't just quit cold turkey. You have to gradually be taken off of it).

Many other people cite the same sensations as this when withdrawing from Lexapro.

I did and ended it with having my gallbladder removed and weaning off Lexapro in one week. My first problems with my gallbladder arose a couple of months into taking Lexapro for the first time years before. I stopped and then I had a pregnancy and about 5 year with no lexapro.

I switched from 10mg lexapro to 30 mg cymbalta for 2 wk and then 60 mg. Have had good results. For one thing I quit gaining weight, as I did on lexapro. Cymbalta also helped my muscle aches and pains as an added plus.

taking 80mg can make you sick, but it's unlikely to cause long term damage. I took 940 mg of lexapro the other day and it made me confused, made me vomit and i had seizures but im fine now.

It could be. But, there were only few who experienced like this.

Well, an experienced-basted question would be a question that you would have had to experience to answer. E.g. Does it hurt to have your ears pierced? That is an experienced-basted question because anyone that had not gotten there ears pierced wouldn't be able to answer the question because they haven't experienced the feeling.

I started on 10 mgs of Lexapro and experienced tolerable but not fun side effects for about a month. After then, I started feeling a lot better. About a year later, my doctor and I decided to try 20 mgs. Again, I experienced tolerable but not fun side effects for about a month (maybe two at most) and then started feeling better. Again, after a year of being on 20 mgs, my doctor and I increased my medication to 30 mgs. This time I only experienced side effects for a couple weeks (one month max) and started feeling better. So, for me, the side effects lasted about a month with each increase in dosage. Hope this helpts, but it could really be different for anyone. If your side effects aren't tolerable for the time being, tell your doctor.

I had great success with Lexapro. I was given it for panic disorder last year and am currently weaning off of it, due to the weight gain. I've put on 45 lbs. in 1 year of taking it. That's the only negative long-term side effect. I am basically panic free now.

Drug interaction: Alcohol & LexaproLexapro does not interact with alcohol, the manufacturer recommends avoiding alcoholic beverages. it does not effect the same part of the brain, but alcohol has an effect on any drug. Alcohol is a depressant and lexapro is an anti-depressant so drinking will lessen the effects of the lexapro. Anyone who is depressed or bi-polar should not be drinking anyways.LEXAPRO CAUSE SERIOUS DEPRESSANT EFFECTS TO NEW USERS. MIXING WITH ALCOHOL WITH ENHANCE THE DEPRESSANT EFFECT.
