I started Lexapro about a month ago on 10 mg. Two days ago it was increased to 20 mg. The first 2 weeks, I could focus and get my work done, and then it started getting back to the same feelings. I started 20 mg. and I am not feeling very good. I am unmotivated and very tired, although I find it hard to rest.

I have been on Lexapro for 6 weeks 5 mg and I feel the same way, unmotivated, tired and depressed. I am not sure about upping my dose to 10 mg. I have read that for some upping it helps and others like you it gives them side effects. You may have to stick with the 20 mg for a while to see if you get over the side effects. It has helped my anxiety and sleep.
Let me know how it goes. As I am also struggling with it.
Thank you for posting.
