Re: Gritting Teeth While on Lexapro
Some meds make give you more anxiety, some of the side effects go away in time & some don't. You have to give each med a chance & see if the side effects do go away. I tried lexapro & I had every side effect listed, the worst was the nausea & vomitting & racing heart. I only lasted 2 1/2 weeks or so on it.
The anxious feeling may go away & you should know within about 2 to 3 weeks. If they don't then you'll have to try another med. It's not fun, many of us have been thru many meds trying to find one that works for our depression plus has few side effects. It's a trial & error process due to the fact that each dep. med affects each person differently.
