I've been on lexapro for 4 weeks now. Now I get anxiety while eating and it's hard for me to finish a meal because I feel like I'm gonna choke on my food. Has anyone ever had this problem? I don't wanna lose anymore weight.
Hi. I've been on Lexapro for 4 weeks now as well, 3 weeks at upped dosage of 20mg, and I haven't had any feeling of choking or anxiety when I eat. At 4 weeks, I've seen improvement with my anxiety but I still get bouts of it here and there. I'm still not 100% like I used to be and I'm hoping I get there. I was told it takes 4-6 weeks to really feel the benefits.
How has your anxiety been in general when you're not eating? Has it helped at all?
