Normal, no: Most patients starting on a low dose of Lexapro (escitalopram) don't experience much in the way of side effects, but I have had a few patients who have indeed had a terrible set of side effects on low dose lexapro (escitalopram). Please call for a follow up appointment with your clinician to discuss this, and whether another medication would be indicated, or some other change in your treatment.
