I've been on 10 mg. of Lexapro for
a little over a year now, and I think it has helped me with my depression and OCD. Of course, everyone is different, so your results may vary. I've never had a weight problem, so that was not an issue for me. Also, I've been on other AD's such as Paxil, Zoloft, and Effexor, but the Lexapro seems to have fewer side effects. The only side effect that seems to slow me down is the fatigue, but I had this with the other AD's as well.
