How can side effects of Lexapro be prevented?

Hello Dr. I was just prescribed Lexapro for depression. [ I am studying to become a Clinical Psychologist]. I am concerned about the side effects of constipation, and lack of sex drive or orgasim. Is there anything I can consume naturally that might help offset these side effects?

I think these have to do with dosage and I don't think that side effects can go with consuming something else.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
