After many family dilemas, I was depressed and unable to function. This drug put me on an even keel. The only real problem I am having is increased sweating and tight calf muscles upon waking.

This Medication has controlled my depression/Anxiety for about a year now. The one side affect that I have noticed after taking this medication is weight gain.

Daughter is ADHD/Sensory Issues/ODD (oppositional defiant disorder) The daily interactions with her were getting to the point that I cried all the way to work after I dropped her off at school everyday.

Was on Lexapro for 8 years. Loved it. Lost insurance benefits and had to switch. Used Cetalopram for the past year and have had to stop it (on my own, cold turkey) because it caused me to become, basically, a vegetable. Didn't care, didn't want to care, etc. Now I can't get another prescription for anything until I see a shrink because my doc thinks I could be bipolar which I have never, ever ...

May 20, 2013I have been taking Celexa (citalopram) since fall of 2003, and I can tell you without it, I don't know what I would have done. I have had five deaths in my immediate family, and it has helped me to stay focused and stay on an even kell. It has helped keep me calm, and able to think and take care of day-to-day business.

This has been a disaster. I've been on various medications for the last ten years due to persistent, low-grade depression. Celexta gave me bruxism, Zoloft made me want to do nothing but sleep, and Cymbalta was great for me, but just stopped working after a couple of years. So my doc started me on this and it did nothing. Until I tried to stop taking it! Since then (and I've tapered off very slow ...

Lexapro ruined my family's life. I would not recommend this drug to anyone! It created aggression, hostility, weight gain, alchoholism, and it made the person into a total zombie. Lexapro is EVIL.

A friend of mine was taking Lexapro and highly recommened it. After fighting depression, I consulted my doctor and she prescribed 10mg to start. I felt it working immediately. 3 months later, she increased the dosage to 20mg and I am completely satisfied. I am not edgy, short tempered and I sleep like a baby. This drug saved my life!

Lexapro helped my depression a few years back when both Wellbutrin and another did not work out well for me.Lexapro did help my depression but I felt it kind of brought me to a mellow happy medium. I wasn't back to being excited about everything and being full of life, but I could get through the normal day fine and was overall happy. It got my life back on track. I did notice the sexual side ...
