    Question lexapro 5mg - muscle twitching question

    I am about to start lexapro 5 mg. (1/2 a pill of a 10 mg). I read on another thread i could expect the D word and neasua. I have had neasua since nov 05. my dr said the serotonin will help with that. I read I just have to get past the first 2 weeks of side effects.
    my question is will the serotonin make my muscle twitching worse or lesson? Does anyone have any input. Yesterday ended my 24 hour (ave of once a half hour for a full day) twitching of my right back side/sholder blade area. Now my (and at times both) bicepts are pulsing.
    I am in the middle of the rabies series shots.
    anyone have any input?

    I'm on Lexapro as well. I've been taking it since May or so. I've noticed that my hands are shaky sometimes (when I first started taking it, my hands were shaking pretty much constantly). I also had some arm twitchiness. When I asked my doctor about it, he told me that the shakiness is actually a good sign because it means that the Lexapro is working. He also said that the shakiness would eventually go away. It's gotten a lot better for me, but like I said, I still have shaky hands sometimes.

    Everyone reacts differently to medications, so I don't know if the Lexapro will increase your shakiness or not, but I just thought I would share my experience with it.
