Hello Trina. Anxiety is a common, normal side effect of lexapro when first beginning it. Fairly soon, it should ease up and shortly after, most probably leave you altogther. It will take you another week or two before you begin to feel the full theraputic effects of the drug. Best wishes,pledge
Lexapro worked wonders for my anxiety, give it time it should kick in soon. Best of luck - Nena
Antidepressants can make nervousness and anxiety worst before they make it better. Hang in there its worth the wait. I almost gave up twice because of side effects but I thank God I hung in there and remember you are already nervous with anxiety anyway.
I hope you feel better,
I'm nervous about starting lexapro, plz let me know how its working for u
