    Restarting for third time - new side effects


    I am restarting cipralex for the third time, and for the first time ever Iím having insomnia as a side effect, which is absolutely brutal. I can only sleep 2 hours a night and I feel like a hot mess / zombie all day.

    One thing I noticed was that the particular generic brand that Iíve been given (apo-escitalopram) is different from the versions I took before (name brand, teva, and oxolate) is it possible this is the reason for the new side effect? Or is it possible to get new side effects when restarting a drug youíve used before?

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated

    Thank you

    I found the same thing when a chemist slipped me a generic.
    With the real brand name Lexapro I have no problems.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    Don't be afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin.

    I'm on escitalopram for the first time, but I have read that it's quite common for people to have new side effects when re-starting.
