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.
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.
