Oops I don't know what happened there... Sorry lol....well I was sharing my story...I have been on lexapro for 8-9 weeks now and on 5mg...I definitely felt improvement but lately I do have some days where I'm feeling a little anxious so im just not sure if its due to some stress I'm going through (bdays, holidays,job changes etc)...I'm just feeling like its a setback and if the lex is not working well and also to mention that I have been on lexapro before twice in my past and always used 5mg and worked great.
Hi Roxo looks like you stopped before you finished your question..But as far as Lexapro goes you have been on it long enough to be showing some results for anxiety or panic etc...
But with some people i don't see which dose your on the doctor might have to increase it,Or add something else to help or just change it if you are not having any results..If it was me I would call the doctor and see what they want to do if I am understanding you right..Please don't worry it is not uncommon to have to try several different medications to find the one the helps you the best,Sadly this is very common with us so don't feel bad.Your not alone by any means so many people go through this Please feel free to respond if i did not take your question right this is the most commons problems with these medications but you have given it the proper amout of time to kick in if its going to help you..Do not just stop taking it without talking with the doctor please..give them a call and just tell them it is not working well..there are so many options these days. So don't worry more about it I have been in your shoes and it is not easy sometimes lots of patients while they get you regulated on the right medication or combination of meds..Hope this helps Give your doctor a call today its a week day so you should be able to talk to the doctor or nurse good luck don't give up..Chuck1957 medically retired pharmacy technician Cpht
