    Please help with this question about lexapro....

    I just started lexapro four days ago, I know its too soon to know if it is working, but my side effects seem to be getting alittle less agressive. My question is about the possible sexual side effects, how far into my treatment with lexapro would I know if this is going to be a problem for me. I have never been on any meds like this before and I am on lexapro for anxiety. Any help would be great!

    I also hear that the weight gain effects are usually from an increased appetite, not the lexapro itself, is this true????

    Re: Please help with this question about lexapro....

    I've been on Lexapro for a little over six weeks and I am not having any sexual side effects. Initially I might have... but I had also just come off bcp's so it's hard to say. The main thing is now I'm fine.... so if it was the Lexapro, it didn't last too long.

    It's been great for my anxiety and no weight gain here.

    Good luck
