No personal experience but my younger sister started taking a similar drug a little over a year ago. She was constantly tired/extremely moody for about a month. After that, she was the happiest I had ever seen her. Maybe give it a couple more weeks. I hope this helps!

I’ve not taken Lexapro, but if it is really interfering with your life in another week or two see if you can move up your appointment or try a different medication. Sometimes you have to try several meds to find one that works for you.

It can take a few weeks to adjust.  Lexapro is a good med & a lot of people tolerate it really well.

I would give it until you next doctor visit.  Hope it ends up working brilliantly for you!

I took it for over a year but it didn’t help with my anxiety so I recently changed meds. I had trouble sleeping before it, it didn’t help much but over the past several months I have been sleeping a lot more. It definitely takes a while to adjust to the new medication, so hopefully your sleep will settle back down, but if not, talk to your doctor.
