Lexapro is prescribed at 10 or 20 mgs. The length of time to be on it depends on how much effort you put into developing the skills to control your panic and learning your triggers. The medication is only useful while taking it. It doesn't heal the problem. Only you can do that through retraining your mind. Lexapro can help, but isn't a short term cure.
