Problems With Lexapro
Lexapro® (escitalopram oxalate) is an antidepressant often prescribed to treat depression and generalized anxiety disorder. It is a type of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor and comes in both tablet and liquid form.
As with any medication, it is possible to develop problems with Lexapro. Most people tolerate this drug well, however, and side effects (if they do occur) are generally minor. Some of the most common side effects that have been reported with Lexapro include headache, insomnia, and ejaculation problems.
While most side effects are mild and either do not require treatment or can be treated easily, some are more serious and should be reported to your healthcare provider immediately. Seek medical attention right away if you develop any potentially serious Lexapro problems, including suicidal thoughts or behavior, hallucinations, or any signs of an allergic reaction (such as wheezing or difficulty breathing).
