lexapro and seizures

Does anybody think lexapro can cause you to have a seizure. I am just wandering. I have been on lexapro for about a month now and the first couple of weeks were good, but know it feels like my brain is different. Its still helping but at the same times it feels as if its doing more damage than good. Anybody else feel this way?

No. I've never heard of that. My friend takes it and it's helped her a lot.
Hopefully someone can help you here.

Re: lexapro and seizures

I havenít heard of Lexapro causing seizures however, when my doctor prescribed them to me she asked if I already had seizures. So my guess is that they can intensify them or bring them on if you are already prone to it. If itís helping stick with it. Iím sure you know everyone is different and reacts differently to meds. I hope this helped.

Re: lexapro and seizures

Thanks for the replys. From what I have read I think if you already have seizure problems Lexapro can cause them to get worse. But I didnt know if mabey they caused them. I figured they didnt but I wanted to ask and see if somebody has never had a seizure before and had one while taking Lexapro.
