I just started Lexapro this last month for anxiety, after having side effects from Zoloft. The first month on Lexapro was great, when i went back to the doctor for a usual check up on how the meds were doing he advise me to up it to 10mg, which i refused ( i know dumb me ). So I guess now I am curious if that's why the anxiety could be acting up again. Although getting my period does make it worse from i PMS pretty badly. If you guys can give me some tips or advice that would be great. Cause so far i love Lexapro, so I'm hoping to be able to stay on it.
