Exclamation Re: yawning a lexapro sideffect

I am not sure but I have been taking Lexapro now for over a month and I yawn as well. It gets quite annoying.
The sexual side effects are HORRIBLE! I am a married woman and I need to have sex. But I am finding it to be a very hard thing to accomplish while on this med. I hate it. What other side effects are you having? I go see my doc tomorrow and I am gonna bring up all mine.

1- headaches
2- upset stomache (from time to time)
3- no orgasm and/or very hard to achieve one
4- no sexual drive at all
5- yawning all the time
6- can't sleep very well at night

the only side effect I do like is I lost my appitite. I don't eat as often and don't feel the need to. I almost have to shove the food down just because I know my body needs it. sigh.... I wish there was a miracle drug out there for me.....

Re: yawning a lexapro sideffect

I can't remember if it was Lexapro because I've tried all the SSRI's, all with side effects, but one of them did make me yawn constantly. It was so embarassing. I had to explain to my co-workers that I was taking some medication that was causing it. Doc. said that was I side effect I'd have to deal with until it got in my system (somewhere around two weeks). Anyway -I couldn't take it anymore and got off of it. I know alot of people who have found that SSRI's work for them, I just never found any for me. Just the Xanax.

Re: yawning a lexapro sideffect

I have only been on Lexapro for about a week now. The only sideffect I can tell that I have right now is the yawning. My orgasms are kind of weak sometimes. I guess I will have to wait and see if anything else comes up.
