In brief: Lexapro (escitalopram) or depressio

My question would be whether you were tired all the time before you started the Lexapro (escitalopram) or only since then.
Not every medication is the right one for every person, so perhaps Lexapro (escitalopram) is not the right drug for you. Or it could be that the depression is still hanging on.

In brief: Might be the medicat

Sometimes Lexapro (escitalopram) or other antidepressants can cause fatigue.
For some people they try alternative routes to help the fatigue assuming that the depression has been helped. These include exercise, yoga, excellent food , and meditation.
