Discussions that mention lexapro

Anxiety board

Hi, :wave:

I have social anxiety and so far have tried Buspar and LExapro. The Buspar didn't help with the social anxiety and while the Lexapro helped somewhat, I couldn't stand the sexual side effects. I just started taking Effexor and don't know what to expect. Anyone have any experience with it? Thanks

buspar seldom helps for much at all, its a tranquilliser
lexapro is an antidepressant, so is effexor but its a different type, yoiur reaction to it cant be predicted so you will have to wait and see
