After more than 10 years on Lexapro (Escitalopram) I was struggling, particularly with anxiety. After trying to increase the dose with no major improvement, my psychiatrist changed me to Prozax/Fluoxetine. I am nearly 3 weeks into that. I have also been on lithium for years to boost the SSRI.
Things haven't settled for me. I am either the same or more anxious. I have had early waking (which I didn't have on Lexapro) and am then anxious and depressed.
The only thing that helps is .5mg xanax to just break the cycle.
Can anyone identify?
I see my psychiatrist is a few days I'm sure he will know what to do. I know a new SSRI can take a while to work so it might be wait and see?
