Lexapro

So, I have anxiety, mainly over getting sick, especially Diarrhea. I was put onto Zoloft for about 4 days but I had diarrhea from it and I was so miserable that I couldn't keep it up. Now I have been prescribed Lexapro. I took it last night, and this morning I didn't have diarrhea but I URGENTLY had to go in the morning. Anyone have any experience with diarrhea and Lexapro? How long it will last? I am currently only taking 5mg until this passes, then I will go up to 10mg.

I have this fear of having like, constant uncontrolable diarrhea at work, and I'd like to be able to either put this fear to rest or get off of this medicine before this happens!!!

Re: Lexapro

I had some problems w/ this when I first started Lexapro, 5mg. I had nausea and diarrhea for about 2-3 days, then it passed as my body adjusted to the new med. When I increased to 10mg, I had a little bit of it again, but it passed quickly. When I increased to both 15mg and 20mg, I didn't have any of that at all.

I think it's normal, and just your body adjusting. It's annoying and gross, but it should pass. Give it a few more days. If the Lexapro ends up working for you, it'll all be worth it in the long run. Good luck!
