I am in the 5th week now of 10mg of Lexapro, and still no relief of anxiety, negative thoughts or mild depression. I asked my doctor if I should try upping my dose to 15mg but he said he wants me on the 10 a few more weeks. I'm wondering though if since I never got of the side effects (except agitation),that most people experienced during the first couple weeks of starting this med if it's simply because my body just isn't reacting to it? I'm kind of wondering now if agitation is part of the side effects or if I'm just becoming frustrated by the wait for it to work and hasn't. Any advise or experience with this would be greatly appreciated.
