Just curious if any of you taking lexapro have noticed symptoms of constipation. I've been on a very low dose for about a week and noticed some sluggishness in my bowels. I hate that! I'm also on Zelnorm so maybe it's not working as well. Would appreciate any feedback. Thanks,Tiss

I have noticed that lexapro has slowed me down for sure. I started not having to take my questran everyday for ibsd. I can now go three or four days without taking the questran and with out having d either since being on the lexapro. So for me it is great.

I am only taking 5mg of lexapro and while I feel better mentally I don't like the GI effects. The Zelnorm doesn't seem to work as well. I think I'll cut back to 2.5mg of lexapro and see if that clears up some of the intestinal problems. Seems we're always trading one problem for another!
