I have started using Lexaro 6 months ago,Intially started with 0.5mg and increased up to 20mg.this medicine given extraordinary relief for 5 months. though recently noticed the medicine is not giving the same result. When approached the Doctor he confirmed that this is Poop-out effect. Have tried alternative Antidepressants though not getting same benefit as Lexapro..anyone had similar experience? Please share your inputs

I used to be on Lexapro for OCD and depression but am currently tapering it as it is causing severe insomnia. I take metformin (1000 mg) for obesity, which also has antidepressant effects. Hope that helps!

I'm on lexapro 40mg and we're are going to increase it if my heart can handle it. Same deal I was really happy for about 4 months and now it's tapered off.
