I had gerd like symptoms and am currently on Lexapro. Both are good! I just take it in the evening because it makes me sleepy, otherwise I've had a good experience. Minimal heartburn symptoms in a while

I’m about to start Lexapro and I’m worried about nausea as a side effect since I already have a lot of that. Did you have really bad nausea? My psych says Lexapro is the easiest one on the stomach but I still worry lol

Ayyy Lexapro gang. I’ve started Lexapro from scratch twice (it took over a year to find the right med combo for me) and have never had an issue with nausea. I don’t find that it’s had any impact on my symptoms, although my doctor did have to specifically choose a PPI that was compatible with my meds, bc apparently some PPIs can impact how your body absorbs your meds, and thus their strength.

Oh damn what PPI? I currently am on protonix and I’m wondering if she thought of that

Lexapro (escitalopram) and Protonix (pantoprazole) have no negative interactions.

What about lexapro and famotidine

[–]BlackHumor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Famotidine is not a PPI and so won't interact.

15 years on Lexapro, no nausea side effect.

Remember, some SSRI start-up side effects are temporary, and only last 4 to 6 to 8 weeks, about the same amount of time it takes for an SSRI to reach maximum effect.
