... 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?
My doc just increased my dosage to 30mg of Escitalopram after being on 20mg for 6 weeks with mixed?

Have you heard of any pregnant women on 30mg dose or higher? I am 35 weeks pregnant and the last doc I talked to intends to put me on 30mg because I told him that I built up a tolerance to 20mg. I didn’t tell him that I am pregnant though as it was a quick online consultation. I am going to see him tomorrow and see how it goes.
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.
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.
How have you done on this dose. My doctor just put me on 30 mg a day?
U guys my dr change me from citalopram to generic to lexapro i hope i feel better soon when do u guys take it
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.
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.
