Lexapro (escitalopram) is a popularly prescribed antidepressant from the group of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Its effects are based on restoring the balance of chemicals in your brain treating such conditions as anxiety and depressive disorder, although your health care provider may also prescribed it for some other cases. Make sure you never take Lexapro along with such MAO inhibitors as rasagiline, isocarboxazid, tranylcypromine, selegiline, or phenelzine, as dangerous health effects are possible. Suicidal thoughts are sometimes reported by patients who just started using this medicine, and this side effect is more often reported in patients younger than 24. If you are younger than 24 your health care provider will want to monitor your condition for any side effects you may develop, including suicidal thoughts. Make sure you show up for regular appointments for the first 12 weeks of your treatment. There is no need to worry if you get a few mild side effects of Lexapro, such as sleep problems, upset stomach, drowsiness, mild nausea, ringing in your ears, weight changes, constipation, dry mouth, dizziness, or any other ones of the kind, as they will most probably go away on their own.
