If you do find out that you need higher doses to achieve the benefit you are seeking, you may want to discuss switching to Lexapro. As for TD, I have never had a patient develop that on an antidepressant. ...Read more

This issue can be overcome by maintaining a very high caloric intake which can be hard to do. Talk 2doc. ...Read more
