Advice & Tips: As side effects go, drowsiness is one I can manage, but at times the daytime napping really gets old. I'm very lucky that I work from home, so nobody knows if I nap during the day, so long as my work is submitted on time. So far, the increased daytime sleep has not impacted my work.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Mild Depression: Major
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 20 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Cipralex was quite good at treating my depression, and I would recommend it to others. However, it does make it difficult to think clearly some of the time, which can be very frustrating. It also, in my case, led to gradual weight gain, so I'm switching to a different med that won't cause me to continue gaining weight - and will hopefully also allow me to think more clearly.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Mild Depression: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I've found that taking Cipralex (Escitalopram) makes it more difficult for me to think about one thing for prolonged periods of time. This might be a good thing in some instances - once I missed a dose and found myself unable to let a topic go for a good twenty minutes. But it is annoying to have your train of thought constantly "leave the tracks".
