  1. I have been on Lexapro (10mg. daily) & Mirtazapine (7.5 mg. daily) since 2003. The combination of these 2 drugs gave me some wonderful years up until 2017. Because of the expense of the brand name Lexapro, I switched to Escitalopram. Right away I noticed a difference in my mood & side effects. I always had to be careful of my weight on these drugs, but I was willing to endure this trade-off for the relief I got from taking these meds. Taking Escitalopram, caused me to begin having severe anxiety & digestive issues. I started taking Alprazolam to curb the anxiety, but it seemed to make matters worse. I switched back to brand name Lexapro in 2018, & did a slow taper off of Alprazolam in 2019. I jumped from it in Dec. 2019. I still take the Lexapro & Mirtazapine. However, I still have lingering side effects. They include constant burping, stomach gurgling & bloating, & trapped gas. I’ve had a series of GI tests & all came back normal. Blood work was ok too. I’m wondering if Lexapro is the culprit, & considering doing a very slow taper off of it. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.
