I am taking escitalopram for anxiety. I did 10 days on 5mg and increased this to 10mg 2 days ago.

Since increasing I have felt more anxious and I shake and dry retch. Negative thoughts, and quite tense. Previously the clonazepam was helping with this but doesn’t seem to be as effective now. I am taking 0.25mg of clonazepam.

Also this morning I woke up very light headed and dizzy.

Just wondering if anyone has experienced the dizziness. And if so how long did it last for and what did you do to help it?

Also is it normal for anxiety to go up? I’m not feeling particularly anxious about the medicines or anything. But I am just really tense and have bouts of shaking and dry retching.

Thanks kindly
