i'm on 10mg of lexapro for about 17 months (for generalized anxiety disorder) and i feel pretty good, most of the time. i'd say i'm about 80% there :-) i've sort of plateaued at this level though, even after cbt, hypnosis and nlp treatments. my doctor said 80% isn't good enough that i should increase my dose to 15mg. i'm scared of the 'worse before better' part of increasing the dose :-( i found it VERY hard when i started back on the 10mg last year. so i'm wondering should i take the higher dose because if it suits me i will feel completely better and then can think about coming off the meds after a while. OR will i just end up having to take higher and higher doses of lexapro eventually?
