Re: Just prescribed Lexapro and SCARED!
I started Lexapro on Monday. I was very nauseous, but that has gone away. I'm not noticing any difference in my appetite. My suggestion would be that if you do feel hungry, eat vegies or fruit. Maybe try chewing gum. The fact that your depression caused you to gain weight may indicate that once you have been on the Lexapro for a bit, maybe you will actually lose weight because you will feel better and not have the need to eat as much.
