Lexapro (Escitalopram) is indicated for the treatment of depression
, but is also used by doctors for anxiety
, such as the one your son has. The official prescribing information mentions dizziness
, somnolence, increased sweating, tiredness
and also many other side effects such as a reduced sex drive, absence of ejaculation, absence of orgasms, etc. If your son is sexually active, such side effects can affect his performance not only during sex but also during other activities such as daily living, sports, etc.
