... results. I'm in my 4th day at 30mg. Has anyone had success with 30mg and how long did it take to feel the results?
I have a freind on 30 mg he just started it though last week I just talked to him he says he feels better .He was hav a change in carrer and he was stressing on it so the dr told him to take another half with his 20 mg he already takes.
Why is it that when I ask my Dr. to increase my Lexapro, he says he can't prescribe over 20 mg. I have been taking that for 10 years and I think it needs to be increased. But he won't do it.
U guys my dr change me from citalopram to generic to lexapro i hope i feel better soon when do u guys take it
How have you done on this dose. My doctor just put me on 30 mg a day?
Escitalopram is quite fast acting compared to the older SSRIs. I've gone from 20 to 30 mg before, and I usually feel the results in a week to 10 days, sometimes even less. After 2 weeks I experience little change.
Upon starting this response I see that this post is quite old but still, maybe this info may help someone. So I just did genetic testing to see what meds (antidepressants/anti anxiety/ADHD) would work for me after having many failed attempts with them. Well it was mostly a bunch of junk because the meds they say may work just fine give me maximum side effects however the one piece of good info on there was that I metabolize certain meds faster and my genetics show that, specifically Lexapro, is needed at a higher dose because it doesn’t work properly at standard dosing. It may be why you need higher dosing as well. Just a thought based on my current experience with it.
