Hi I recently went to a sleep clinic for sleep problems. The doctor who is also a phyciatrist told me that the study showed that I had anxiety. He wrote a percription for a lexapro 10 mgs. He told me to stay on the ativan at night 1mg.and wrote me a perscription for lexapro. I don't know much about lexapro. I did here that it causes weight gain and I can not afford to gain anymore weight. I'm in my mid forty's and my metabilism has already slowing down I am 5'6" and 142 lbs. I don't want gain anymore weight. I like to keep up with my appearance. I also don't know anything else about the drug lexapro. The doctor said it will take the edge off. Any opinions. I'm kinda afraid to start with this since I am on so many other meds.for other conditions. Hypo Thyroid, acid reflux, anxiety, sinus. The doctor already knows I take all these meds. Any info. and experiences will be appreciated.
I'm on lexapro now and am going to the DR tomorrow to switch back to wellbutrin XL because I've gained about 15 lbs since June. I know it's the lexapro, it makes me hungry. I was wellburtin LX but wanted to see if anything worked batter. It does, but not so well that I want to gain weight. Remeron does the same thing. Rebcat225
