Formulation: It could be a different generic manufacturer so I am not sure if the capsules look the same? Also, there is the phenomenon when a dose does not prove to be effective after some time. Headaches are a common side effect. You may want to get your heart rate and blood pressure checked out when on it. In addition, there is the "nocebo effect" where losing confidence in it can lower benefit. ...Read more

I took escitalopram 5mg for three days, had bad side effects: headaches, eye disturbances, weird thoughts. I have been off the medicine for almost two months, questions is has this medicine altered or damaged my brain, eyes? I have dry eyes now.

I took escitalopram 5mg for three days, had bad side effects: headaches, eye disturbances, weird thoughts. I have been off the medicine for almost two months, questions is has this medicine altered or damaged my brain, eyes? I have dry eyes now.

Not likely.: Medications like escitalopram, a cousin to citalopram (Celexa) can cause weird symptoms both when you start it & when you d/c it. Your symptoms are particularly unusual but, if they were caused by this med, they will go away. However, please contact your doctor. You may need a different type of anti-depressant OR those symptoms may be totally unrelated to it. Best wishes. Dr. Anne ...Read more

Bad Headache nausea dry stuffy nose coughing chest congestion dry eyes no fever started with sore throat three days ago?

Sore throats tricky: It's so hard to predict accurately when a sore throat IS NOT a strep throat. Your symptoms SOUND like either viral pharyngitis or allergic, right? But, you could also have strep. I would drink fluids, take a little something to knock the pain down a little, maybe some Motrin, and get a strep test done...you can go to a Minute Clinic or something....but I'd get it done. ...Read more

My 11-yo son has been getting bad headaches in temples last three nights. He had minor concussion a few months ago - not sure if related. Could just be a migraine - have been alternating ibuprofen/tylenol, minor relief. What else should we do?

My 11-yo son has been getting bad headaches in temples last three nights. He had minor concussion a few months ago - not sure if related. Could just be a migraine - have been alternating ibuprofen/tylenol, minor relief. What else should we do?

Probably unrelated: A concussion can cause headaches and/or lower the threshold for a headaches shortly after the concussion (within a couple of weeks). However, it's hard to connect these headaches now with a concussion months ago. Think about other causes of headaches- stress, low blood sugar, eye fatigue/poor vision, infections, dehydration, etc. Of course, see your pediatrician if not improving. ...Read more
