Is its safe to take escitalopram (cipralex) for anxiety? i'm feeling more anxious after taking one tablet.

Hello, thanks for the query. If taken under proper medical supervision & for proper indication, escitalopram is a very good medication to relive depression & various anxiety disorders. May I know who prescribed you escitalopram & in what dose? what were your problems for which you were advised to take tablet escitalopram; so that I can help you better. Good luck.

Dear user. There was also a decrease in sperm count and sperm motility in the fluoxetine groups compared with control mice.Three additional studies on human sperm suggested reduced concentration and motility and altered morphology with escitalopram14 and any SSRI,15 and reduced motility with any SSRI. Take care.

Nexito (escitalopram) is fine, though try cipralex which is the best form of escitalopram and stop petril. Consult psychiatrist. All the best.

Does it impact on offspring if father is being treated with Cipralex for depression disorder?

Does it impact on offspring if father is being treated with Cipralex for depression disorder?
Hi, thanks for writing in. Welcome to the forum. No, cipralex taken by father will not influence offspring. Depending upon the dose and individual characteristics, sexual performance may be positively or negatively influenced. Ejaculation time may increase, libido might decrease or increase and erection may or may not be affected. Regardless, offspring will not be affected. Take care!

It is common to feel attracted to the opposite sex when you have weak mind. Better change the therapist before it becomes irreversible.

You seem to be doing a lot of search on google and I wish to make you understand that the information in google is not for non-medical people to diagnose or treat instead of a trained doctor who knows in detail about the diseases and has the experience of treating many patients. The google information is on and must be used as a piece of guiding information and not as a replacement of doctors. You cannot get therapy through text assistance for c-ptsd using ists 3-stage recovery model where you can take emdr self-administered in 2nd stage in online chat consultation.

Escitalopram, sold under the brand names Cipralex and Lexapro among others, is an antidepressant of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor class. Escitalopram is mainly used to treat major depressive disorder or generalized anxiety disorder. Depressive disorder or depression is a neuro chemical disorder. Suicidal tendency is one main symptom of depression. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, Psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. Take care.

Dear Ankita, You can take Escitalopram on empty stomach or with food or after food, as long as you don't forget to take it. It is better to connect it with food to remember
