  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Rosa on May, 28, 2012:

    I found that my side effects worsedned after raising my dose. I am not able to sleep at all. approximately 3-5 hours a nite, sometimes not at all. And when i can't sleep, I binge eat in the middle of the night. I have NEVER done this. I also take 1 mg of klonopin, and 150mg of lamictal. I will be weaning myself off of the lexapro. I had a horrible experience with celexa and cymbalta "withdrawal". I'm hoping lexapro isn't as bad. Wish me luck!!
