I tried Lexapro and other antidepressant in the SSRI family and they were not the class of antidepressants that I could tolerate. I'm currently taking Wellbutrin XL.
When I took Lexapro I craved carbohydrate. Of course giving in to this type of craving led to weight gain, but there are other women who did not experience this craving or weight gain.
We are all so unique and wonderfully made!
