Escitalopram Oxalate Side Effects
What side effects will I get if I suddenly stop taking escitalopram . I've been taking it for about a month.?
Could I be getting side effects from escitalopram just a few hours after taking it for the first time?
Yes: With any mediation, side effects can occur immediately on reaching the blood stream. Early side effects tend to be more seriouis and more likely to discourage continuation of the medication. True allergic responsies (hives, shortness of breat, trouble swallowing, tongue swelling) should be treated immediately medically and the medication stopped then also. Escitalopram isn't unique in that regard. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

That being said, with clinical experience, I have had good success with escitalopram in my patients, and it tends to be well tolerated.
