He should have asked the doctor to outline side-effects, and should have insisted that the pharmacist both do the same, AND provide a copy of the Package Insert which will in print outline all those side-effects, precautuions, etc. In my opinionm any pharmacist who fails to provide package inserts when filling a prescription is behaving unethically and unprofessionally.
Lexamil seems to be a generic ( cheaper but equivalent ) version of Escitalopram, very recently launched. And supposed to have fewer side-effects than other ADs. It can, however, produce any of the side-effects seen with other members of the SSRI family, and that can include sleep disturbances.
