I used to be on Lexapro - I was on it for about 2 years and it helped with the depression. If I'm remembering correctly, I believe I stopped taking it because I thought it was causing shoulder and neck pain. But I've also been diagnosed as having fibromyalgia, so that could have been causing the pain.
Medications react differently with everyone, so just because someone else may have a problem with it, that doesn't mean you will. For example, my daughter used to take Zoloft with few, if any, side effects, but I couldn't take it at all. Everyone's different. In my experience, you just have to start off with a medication, give it a chance, and see how you and your body and mind respond to it.
Good luck! By the way, medication for depression, anxiety and OCD has made my life, and my daughter's life, so much better!!!
