I take Lexapro 15mg and I took 25mg by mistake. Will this effect me in any way?
Warding; It should be okay some people take even a higher dose. But because you are supposed to take 25mg a day you may experience some increased anxiety or tiredness but overall you should be just fine but if it gets to be too much give your doctor a call. TO avoid this again maybe you should get one of those pill reminders sold at most Pharmacy and fill it once a week so that you can look into the day and make sure that you have already taken it for that day. It is always best to be safe than sorry. Please think about that. Anyway, you should be okay and if you have any fears about it call the nurse or the doctor to verify. Best of luck. Chuck1957

I accidentally took a double dose of my medication. So I took 400 mg of trazodone and 2 mg of Xanax?
