    Mild (decreased sex drive (libido))
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden

Advice & Tips: I was seriously suicidal. Lexapro has REALLY helped. It is my most important med. I never miss a dose. Beneficial side effect = slightly lower libido. Time-of-day for dosing is important for me; Evening dosing is not so good (can't fall asleep); morning dosing works well.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
Side effects: decreased sex drive (libido)
