Lexapro, sleepwalking state and alcohol
I drank more red wine than usual traveling with a friend. I took Lexapro in same time frame. In the morning, my friend woke me up, saying, "Turn over, you're snoring." I was sure I was awake because I could hear him clearly - 3 times! - and I replied clearly that I wasn't snoring; I was awake. He said no, you're not. I don't think I was paralyzed, because I turned onto my back finally. But I never heard myself snoring. (I may have sleep apnea, too.) Sound familiar to anyone? First time, btw.

Lexapro and Hiccups
Okay so I started taking Lexapro and Wellbutrin in the summer and started having a bunch of random hiccups. I didn't really notice it until a few months ago. I asked my doctor if he thought it could be a side effect and apparently yes, it is. This is do weird to me but..yeah.
Yawning is a side affect because of oxygen intake changing so the hiccups sounds normal when thinking about that. Any time I have to restart Lexapro I yawn soooo much.

taking ginkgo with lexapro for SSRI sexual dysfunction
So I had taken Lexapro in the past with wonderful results for my depression/anxiety. However, for as wonderful as it worked for those issues it impacted me sexually in a negative way to the same degree. It was as though I was numb 'down there' and increased blood flow and sensation never occurred. I couldn't orgasm or even enjoy the act. It was devastating. I stopped it and tried other types of ADs that worked but caused more side effects. I'm back on Lexapro now and decided to try ginkgo with it, as I read it reverses the SSRI sexual dysfunction. It definitely works! I'm able to enjoy intimacy and orgasm again!
