Likely lexapro (escitalopram): The most likely is lexapro, (escitalopram) although remeron can have varied effects on people. Possibly the combination of,the two. If you have just started lexapro, (escitalopram) it could be an early side effect and will go away in the next week or so. Check with your doctor before changing anything.

MEDICATION: Best to discuss medication with your Psychiatrist. If uncomfortable with your Dr. consult another for a second opinion. Have a physical exam by a Dr. to determine if you have a physical illness. Consult with a Clinical Psychologist for psychotherapy with ZOOM sessions. Fears and anxiety could be heightened due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Stay safe & hopeful to elevate your immune system.
