    I have just been prescribed Lexapro by my OB/GYN. The information I got with my prescription says you can take it with or without food and either morning or night. Can anybody give me suggestion on what they think is better? Also I am a litte nervous about expereincing side effects. My doctor did say that this med could decrease your eating. Has anyone experience this one??? Any information would greatly be appricated. Thanks

    I have been taking this med now for a month & it agrees with me..I think it is quite mild because my doc has advised me to take the Lexapro along with my other anti-depressant & not be concerned taking TWO antidepressants. So it was OK so far with me...as far as the eating less?? Well, not being a great eater to begin with, I can't really comment on whether it affects the appetite. READ up on all your meds ALWAYS...LEARN what you are putting into YOUR body...Good luck!
