Sounded interesting and plausible. Thought I would pass it on. Lexapro has been a god-send. The only side effect I had while starting Lexapro was a metallic taste in my mouth that went away after a few weeks. I have been on Lexapro for about one year now, and am very impressed with it.

But hey, happiness is worth it. I have been on lexapro for quite a while now and have not had any real bad side effects. I take my lexapro in the morning time and I am taking 10mg.
The only side effects I seem to have are memory loss and I seem to be less energetic than normal. If anyone has any answers for me about the memory loss please let me know!! My moods are stable.

Thanks for the prompt response. I know the military is a very shitty situation to be in, but to be honest, my condition, which intensified immensly since I joined, was bound to happen. I have family members who have intense nervousness, anxiety type symptoms.
I grew up with it never realizing I had a problem - thinking that the way I felt was normal. However, now in a world and job that can be so demanding, it is more than ever obvious that something has to be done. I was hoping lexapro was the answer. I do think now that I should have given it more time. I basically feel helpless in this issue, coming off of lexapro and seroquel, it is not something I openly talk about.
