lexapro

  • Disconnect caused by medication?

    Has anyone experienced a disconnect from people because of Lexapro? I seem to have no compassion towards my loved ones since upping my medication. It has helped my panic attacks so much but now I feel like I am pushing away the ones I love. HELP!
  • Does anyone experience tetany during panic attacks?

    I have had agoraphobia and panic attacks since I was 4 or 5. I am 19 now. I struggled for a while last year when I couldn't even leave the house but got on Lexapro and was able to go to college far away and feel a lot better. I have had less panic attacks now that time has passed but today, while driving, I had a random panic attack that I think was triggered by caffeine and high heart rate. My lower chest has a ton of pressure, pins and needles consumed my body, and my hands and, for the first time, my face muscles contorted (pucker-like) and my eyes became squinty. I could not move. It was scary because I was driving and was basically immobile. I knew this wasn't a heart attack because I have had the pins and needles/hand muscle spasms before, due to lack of proper breathing from panic. I talked myself down a little and was able to get home. 2 hours have passed and I still am sore and a little numb. I am nervous because I am flying for the first time in a while to D.C from Los Angeles and I am terrified this will happen on the plane. Does anyone have a similar experience? What do you take on a plane to calm down? Do you have anything that helps you distract yourself? Thank you.
  • Has anyone ever taken a med then stopped and when you started taking it again...seemed to experience side effects?

    I was on lexapro..then taken off...then paxil then taken off...then zoloft and it seemed to work so i took it but stopped for about 6 months thinking I could do it on my own...then when I started taking it again I began to experience like almost a foggy headed feeling, nausea, possibly increase in anxiety...I'm not sure what symptoms are actually from the med or just from the anxiety in general...
  • Lexapro Side Effects

    I am currently taking Lexapro, and it works very well. The only problem is that I am having issues performing sexually. Has anyone experienced this while taking Lexapro. Does anyone know a way I can continue taking Lexapro, and alleviate this issue?
