Social anxiety disorder (SAD). I don't want to leave the house but when I do I m ok if I'm with my other half, Rod. I visit my three son's family but not as often as I would like because I can't get outside the house. I'm 61 just retired from the government March of last year. I could go to work but that's about it, once home, I didn't go out hardly. I love shopping online for food and things I need. I'm thinking I need something more than lexapro but not sure.
Yes, escitalopram is an excellent choice for some people. If you are still having symptoms and have been on the medication for more than several months, you may just need a dosage adjustment rather than add another medication. There are several meds that could be added to the escitalopram that would enhance its effectiveness. You would need to discuss this with your doctor. I, also, recommend talk therapy. Changing behaviors sometimes requires more than just medication.
