Discussions that mention lexapro

Open to All Other Health Topics board

My doctor told me before I started taking risperdal that it would cause me to gain 20 pounds. It's been more than 2 years, and I've gained about 13 pounds.
I would go off it tomorrow if it weren't for the relief it gives me from anxiety.
Paxil didn't work for me, so I tried several other SSRI's and now take Lexapro.
The other side effect from both of these meds is sleepiness.
And the Lexapro exacerbates my restless leg syndrome and makes me clench muscles, so I take Requip to cope with that.
