Muscle Cramps with no Anxiety

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hey guys,

I've been on Lexapro for 3.5 months and it's worked wonders.

I've stopped feeling the feelig of anxiety I used to have, but still have muscle cramps in my right hand.

I started having these when my first panic attack struck. Would you think this is still dur to hidden anxiety or is it something else?

    It is an anxiety side effect but it may also be a medication side effect

    I dont think its anything to worry about, I know thats easier said than done with anxiety but try not to worry

    Could be that your potassium levels are low?  Eat bananas daily, they have know to help with muscle cramps.  athletes eat more of them to keep muscle cramping from happening.
