find myself back at he same point only going back been back on sertraline a year in its fading fast my doc said put up the dose but it just ramps the anxiety up , so I went back on Lexapro this morning and played it safe with 5mg bad news anxiety ramp should have gone to 10mg so both meds pass each other 1 coming in has the other goes out, don't forget Lexapro is way stronger than sertraline , don't straight taper 25mg of sertraline to 10mg lex has some it will floor you. 10mg lex is the same has 100 to 150 mg sertraline , they say is old brother citalopram 30mg is 10mg lex 20mg is says but be proved much stronger , over 65 year old and 10mg is the limit on lex so goes to show strenth
dyslexic; Glad to see someone else telling people you can't compare the milligrams on different medications And that they are totally different medications and the mg means nothing as I used to say it's like comparing a apple to an orange. Also remember when you go to one medication to another or even increase a dose with the doctor okay that we get a lot of the side effects that are only for a short time that many of us get when we start these medications. So hopefully the increase in anxiety for you is only temporary and the newer one your on well kick back in. Have a great day and Merry Christmas to you and yours.
