It works for me.
Seems to help w anxiety
Working / Worked
Lexapro worked really well for my anxiety, but it didn't do much for my depression.
Working / Worked
I took Lexapro for about 3 years, and it worked very well. When I initially started taking it, I felt like I had the flu, and it took about 4 weeks before my body adjusted to the new medication. After that, it worked well for 3 years and I decided to taper off, which turned out to be a mistake because when I tried taking it again, the Lexapro wasn't as effective as it had been in the past.
Working / Worked
It worked really well at first but now its just gotten so much worse. I don't want to be on narcotics but I feel that's where I'm heading
Working / Worked
It had too many side effects
Working / Worked
Took in the beginning when I was 12 and worked very well.
