  • Lexapro vs Elavil

    My pain management doctor is taking me off Elavil and having me take Lexapro instead. When I first started seeing him in January I weighed 136, I now weigh 157
    Anyone taking Lexapro? I was just wondering how it compared to Elavil.

    Hi Stacy You probably would drop some weight. I would ask your doctor about taking Effexor ER. It helps with my pain. Have a nice day.

        I am on Lexapro. It hasn't affected me in any way (good or bad). I couldn't tolerate Elavil (gastroparesis), so I had nothing to compare it to.

          I have been taking Lexapro for 3 days now and I noticed that I am peeing more often and I have a lot of pressure in my lower back and hips. I just hope I don't start to have severe lower back pain again like I did before I started taking Elavil.

            Lexapro

            I started Lexapro 3 weeks ago (10 mg) and I don't notice a difference at all. Does anyone know how long it takes to start working? My anxiety level has dropped somewhat, which is good. The Lexapro is making me tired at night (thankfully!). As far as my IC goes, it's not changing it.
