Forgot to take Lexapro (escitalopram) & i'm dizzy, super tired and i slept like 14 hours today. I am also very irritable. Is this normal? Took it 40 min ago?

In brief: Withdrawal symptoms

The symptoms you describe are classic symtoms of ssri withdrawal.
If you restarted lexapro, (escitalopram) symptoms should abate rapidly.
