Hi ladies, my name is Maggie and I have an 18 month old daughter and am about 12 weeks along with my second. I was prescribed lexapro due to depression (something I've struggled with for years but never addressed... It's been extra bad with this pregnancy). I took my first pill yesterday morning and started feeling nauseated. About three hours later I vomited very violently in a way I've never vomited before. I'm wondering if it's maybe a bad reaction to the lex? I wasn't able to get ahold of my doctor before they closed for the weekend because I literally couldn't speak or get out of bed. I'm afraid to take it today... Thinking of waiting until Monday when I can call my doctor. I just don't know what to do since I don't know for sure if it was hormones or a bad reaction. Very hard for me to take it while worrying about another violent episode.

I've takem meds that made me really sick. It looks like this can be one of the side effects. http://www.rxlist.com/lexapro-drug/c...recautions.htm
If it were me I'd stop taking it until you can talk to your doctor.
