cyprolex
anti-depressant ## Cipralex is a brand name for Escitalopram, also sold under the brand name Lexapro. It is an SSRI antidepressant. Some of the most common side effects include: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and headache. Another thing you should be aware of when taking any of this class of antidepressants is that, in some people, they can also cause severe weight gain.

Once I stopped taking it, the weight immediately dropped off.

Escitalopram Oxalate
white, round, 20mg tablets. Depression?? ## just was given cipralex to try for depression and anxiety - been on zoloft, effexor then prestiq - just wondered if anyone has had any good results ## I have been taking Lexam for approx 4 mths and found it to be far better than Zoloft or the mulitude of others I've been put on in the past. As I'm single I can't comment on any issues with Libido, something that it definitely affected by Zoloft, but I can say that it definitely makes it easier to get up each day. I sleep less (unlike when on Endep) and have more energy than before. I've had no issues with weight gain for once. If anything I've lost a little because I'm not gorging myself with comfort foods. I hope it works as well for you. ...
