Hi all. Firstly I was on aropax (Paxil) for 15 years to help with anxiety and depression. The last nine months I have been having extremely bad anxiety again so bad I had to quit my job. Saw my DR and he suggested I did a straight swap from aropax to lexapro. He advised me of some side effects. I'm on 10mg and he wanted me to increase it to 15mg. I did this but I had server insomnia so went back down to 10mg. I want to up it, but the insomnia really messes with me. I'm still having very bad anxiety. Pretty much nothing has changed. Has anyone had a similar experience? Maybe I should see if I can half the extra half and do it slowly??
