Was on Lexapro for a year and it worked great. Stopped it cold turkey because I thought I wouldn’t need it anymore. Big mistake. 3 weeks later I started it a second time, but stopped it after 2 months because I became full of anxiety and didn’t give it a chance to work and decided to try a different SSRI. But after trying several other SSRI’s, I just think I am going to switch to Lexapro again. What are the chances of it working just as effectively again as the first time?
I think it should work well. You won't know until you give it a real chance.
If it gave you unwanted side effects the second time, it's probably better to try a different med. If you became anxious you should consider if anything in your life was causing the anxiety. I'd think trying a different class of antidepressants would be a better option.
