Hello. I have been on Lexapro 20mg since July. At my last check up my blood pressure was extremely high and I had gained 17 pounds. My doctor did blood work which came back perfect. She determined it was my Lexapro and changed it to Trintellix. I started it a week ago. I've experienced the nausea but it isn't unbearable. Today, especially this afternoon, I am so grumpy! Agitated. Do you think this is normal?

Yes, those symptoms can be normal, if you abruptly stop one medication in this class and start another, according to the FDA. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, weight changes, and dry mouth.

How are you doing now? Has there been any change?

Generally, I've found most side effects to last about 3 weeks, or so.
