Doc put me on Lexapro (escitalopram) for health anxiety I start today. But ive read muscle twitches can be a side effect. Is that true? That would make my anxiety worse

Don't make it worse. The reported side effects for a drug vary from 2/100 to 80/100, depending on drug and side effect. Know that it MIGHT occur, and move on with life--on the med. Then IF it does, you'll already know what caused it--call Dr to report it. If bothersome, ask for a change in med. If not, then ignore it and will fade over time. Breathe and relax. :) Read more...
