lexamil 10mg questions

Hi, I've just started taking Lexamil 10mg 2 days ago, for the first time. I found that it made me extremely sleepy and slowed my movements as well slurring speech and it feels as though I'm on a high. I didn't take it today and opted to rather take it at night. Would it still help the way it should if I take it at night? My Dr also said that it would make me gain weight (which I am happy about) but it seems to have decreased my appetite and I actually don't feel hungry. Will this change after the initiation period of about 2 weeks? Your help is appreciated. Thanks. ## I found that sleepiness was a side effect I experienced for the first month of taking it. I was hungry all the time and I felt spaced out. I halved my dose after 2 months of this and all the symptoms stoppe... ...

Lexamil Medication 10MG

What will happen to my baby newborn if I breastfeed and use Lexamil? ## Hi corrie, Lexamil contains the active ingredient Escitalopram; which can cause harm to the fetus if it is used during the last 3 months of pregnancy. The pregnancy warnings for this drug also note that one should not breast-feed while taking Escitalopram, since it is excreted into human milk. Apparently, there have been two reports of infants experiencing excess somnolence, decreased feeding, and weight loss in association with breast-feeding from a Escitalopram- treated mother. The decision to continue or discontinue either nursing or Escitalopram therapy should take into account both the risks of Escitalopram exposure to the infant and the benefits of Escitalopram therapy for the mother. The results of two case r... ...
