You may be interested at these reviews (Write a review):

  • Tourette's syndrome caused by lexapro
    After two months on lexapro, Tourette's syndrome started and has continued for 18 months, increasing in intensity and frequency. After one month off the Lexapro, the Tourette's syndrome has stopped completely.
  • Escitalopram /narcolepsy
    Began taking escitalopram one month ago. Having narcoleptic type sleep incidents as well as unwanted suicidal thoughts. Legs and arms also go out. Sleeping up to thirteen or more hours per day.
  • Lexapro and memory loss
    I actually have no idea what other medicine I was on the week I took Lexapro, it was back at the end of February 2014 right before I checked myself into the psych hospital. I formed no memory for a whole week just because of one drug! My friends and family tell me what happened that week and I have called them a liar because there is no recall from that week! I have been on psychiatric drugs for over 14 years and have never had such a horrible reaction as I did with Lexapro! The side effects do not include this reaction, but I didn't sleep at all that week or so I am told and there is just nothing, not even a little memory. Take this as you will I am not saying everyone gets this side effect I am just saying it is not impossible. I learned a lesson I don't remember, but will never take Lexapro again! It was dangerous for me!
  • Patients having false positives while on remeron
    I have had a few patients complain they are failing drug tests for Amphetamines while on remeron, and have claimed to have not used any type of Amphetamine or any (Mixed Salts). These patients are all or were on probation, parole, or under some stipulation. Iv realized most of these patients are taking another psych med. The list consists of insomnia meds such as Ambien(zolpidem), Sonata(zaleplon),Lunesta(eszopiclone). Also the Anti-Depressants Lexapro (escitalopram)and Prozac (fluoxetine). One of my patients was on Diazepam (Valium). I have switched medicines, particularly the Ambien, Lexapro, and Prozac have reversed the false negative. I prescribe many of my patients remeron. I'm a big believer in its effects on my patients moods and everyday depression. I have heard this happening before, but this was the first time I have ever had this happen to one of my own patients.(These were 5 separate patients in the span of 16 months) Of course none of these patients were criminalized based on lab results, but the issue still lies there. I know this is common for a lot of script meds to give false positives for narcotics. This is just obviously one I am putting out there. Let me know if anyone has experienced something similar.
  • Yes, lexapro does cause tinnitus! (1 response)
    Whenever I forget to take my Lexapro in the morning, I get a high pitched ringing in my ears which starts around 1:00 pm, which won't go away until a few hours after I take the drug. Once I was out of the medication and I almost screamed because the ringing got so bad! I don't think it is as "rare" in the listed side effects as the manufacturer states.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • Naprosyn, Vicodin, Ativan and Prilosec are taken only on an as needed basis. Some of my symptoms are intermittent, and some are chronic. The though the medications may not completely rid me of a symptom (for example, depression or muscle pain), they do improve my condition enough to warrant their continued use. I'm much better off taking them than not.

    The oral issues I'm having all began around the same time in the last year. I first noticed a sensitivity for spicy food I had never experienced. I can no longer use adult toothpaste because the minty flavors are so provinces as to cause pain. The gum irritation comes and goes as does the severity of the other oral pain I experience.

    My hair loss I can describe as severe as it can be without having visible bald spots. Whereas I once had unusually thick hair (a ponytail of around 1.5 inches), I have lost so much that my ponytail now measures about .5 inches.
