Lexapro Anger Reviews

Mon, 11 Jun 2012

Side effects are common. 

Thu, 06 May 2010

Seroplex/Lexapro almost destroyed our lives. My husband was prescribed it for mild anxiety/panic attacks. Within days it transformed him into a helpless being who could not get out of bed, couldn't eat, had terrible dreams and unbeknownst to me, a fixation with suicide. Eleven days later, he hanged himself. I was fortunate to be in the house at the time and although he had stopped breathing, managed to administer cpr and called for help. He left hospital 2 weeks later and made 2 subsequent suicide attempts before being changed to Effexor.

Sun, 14 Dec 2008
I've been taking Lexapro for just 5 days. The first 2 days I had anxiety and irregular heart beat. Third day felt pretty good. Fourth and fifth day my blood pressure has spiked really high. I'm sure it's from the Lexapro. Don't know if I should stop it and try something else or if this will stop. It really scares me. I am going to go see my Doctor tomorrow but wondered what your thoughts would be and if other people have had this problem.

I took 4 10 mg. Lexapro and I was trippin balls I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy
Tue, 16 Feb 2010
Lexapro is a permanent life long cure for any depression if you can survive the treatment. I was prompted by a marriage counselor to go to my doctor and request drugs for my OCD symptoms (checking, intrusive sad thoughts, previous eating disorders as a teen and heavy drinking.) I went to my husband’s pcp who never met me before. He gave me a depression self-test and diagnosed me with depression and anxiety, and then prescribed me Lexapro and Rozerem since I had a terrible insomnia problem. He also decided it was a good idea to start kissing me and grabbing me in his office. The Lexapro did such a good job getting me up and doing things, lots of things, but unfortunately, I believe it also may have made me nervous because it raised my blood pressure from it’s usual 120/80 to 145/110. I was really up, up, up. I could drink twelve shots of straight liquor and still be walking around for hours. This was the busiest year of my life. I managed to get 2 DUI’s 4 drunk in publics and an involuntary commit for suicide, attend 2 rehab’s, a hypnotherapist, weekly ASAP programs, all while working full time an taking care of a young child. During the course of my medical treatment, I was seen by 3 psychiatrists, 4 doctors, and numerous counselors. Most of the follow up treatment involved numerous more drugs, anti-buse, campral, and Buspar. All of which I had to stop taking due to side effects such as full body tremors and falling down. Finally, after the second DUI which I was also charged with a felony for pinching a police officers butt, I decided maybe I should stop taking the Lexapro b/c I seemed to have developed some obsession with alcohol and I could see I was also becoming delusional. So, while in jail, I requested no more medication for 1 week and was able to fully withdraw from Lexapro, although the depression side effects of the withdrawal lasted about three months. I met numerous other women in jail for DUI’s while on Zoloft, Lexapro and Abilify and others for shoplifting on Zanax. My depression is 100% permanently cured. I no longer ever feel sad about my life. I have never killed anyone driving drunk, I didn’t kill myself, I am no longer in jail, I didn’t get my kid taken away from me, I am not in a mental institution, and I don’t have a lethal diastolic blood pressure of 110 anymore. No matter what happens in my life now, I am always hopeful and never depressed. I know things could be much worse.

I've taken Lexapro 10mg for many years. I have never experienced any side effects. It's a wonderful drug and has helped me tremendously.
Sun, 10 Jan 2010
The first day that I took Lexapro 10mg I ended up in the hospital for 2 days. Shortly after taking it I experienced a burning feeling that began in the back of my neck and washed all over me down my arms and back to about my hips. Numbness and sweating in all extremities. Burning across jaw. Extreme anxiety, dry mouth, panicky. Entire left side of body began trembling. Called paramedics - ecg normal but transported to hospital anyway. Set off heart monitor in ER twice so admitted for tests - all normal.
