I have suffered from panic/anxiety/depression for more than 20 years. Been of different medicines... recently was prescribed 10 mgs of Lexapro and 1mg of Ativan. Was feeling OK, then the other morning, I woke up really anxious. Is this normal? I know it says give it a few weeks, but I thought with me being on different drugs all this time, it would kick in quicker. I've read a lot of scary things and good things about this drug. I guess I'm just scared that I'm going to end up back where I was in the very beginning. Has anyone had their med increased after just a few weeks? Thanks. K.
