I have been using nexito 5mg for a long time (8 months). Each time I try to discard it I am getting severe side effects. I don't get sleep at night. I am having horrible dreams.

The tablet with the IG 250 marking contains 10mgs of Escitalopram, the active ingredient in Lexapro, so he has received the correct medication. It's just manufactured by a different company.

It's how they keep prices down for their uninsured customers. Learn more Lexapro details here. This medication may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and weight changes.

Lexamil 20 Mg Side Effects
5 Replies RSS
I have been on Lexamil 20mg for about 2 months now (started at 5mg and increased slowly) and unless I take it with Aterax at night then I battle to fall asleep. I also find that I have vivid dreams that leave me exhausted in the morning. Lexamil has made me feel better except for this. Should these side effects stop if I take the Lexamil in the morning? ## Have you discussed it with your doctor? Lexamil contains the active ingredient Escitalopram and some doctors do direct it to be taken at night, since it can cause drowsiness as a side effect, but some people do much better taking it in the morning. When is the last time the dosage was increased? That may also have something to do with the side effects, as it can take several weeks for them to start to taper off and it's natural to...

escitalopram sickness
2 Replies RSS
I took 80mg brand name Lexapro for several years and it was a great experience. I had no adverse side effects besides it keeping me a bit more on the manic side, but i liked that. Dare i say i felt as close to happy as i ever had. During some difficult financial times my doc suggested i try the much cheaper Celexa (citalopram) which he claimed was absolutely interchangeable with Lexapro. It wasn't. It didn't do a godamn thing for me. I gave it a couple months then asked for my Lexapro back, but again decided to go the cheaper route and get the generic. What a nightmare! Within the hour after ingesting 20mg of escitalopram i became violently ill. It creeped up with dizziness and a rapidly increasing heart rate, which got worse and worse until my heart was throbbing inside of my c...

I would like to go off lexamil 10mg. How can I do it ? Can I leave it at once ? ## How long have you been taking it and what has your doctor advised? Lexamil contains the active ingredient Escitalopram, which is an SSRI antidepressant and, if you've been taking it for a long period of time, then a sudden cessation may cause withdrawal and rebound effects, which may be worse than the condition you started taking it to treat. In most cases, it is best to taper these types of medications, as slowly as possible. ## I've been using it for 9 months now. Should I first reduse it. I'm gaining wait and think it is the Lexamil. ## Yes, you should definitely speak to your doctor about a tapering plan to get off of it and avoid most of the withdrawal and rebound effects. They may even b...
