just seen a new doctor today & wants me to start taking 10mg of lexapro... I'm so nervous! anyone here have any experience with this drug?
I have taken Lexapro and just about all of the other SSRI antidepressants. For me it did help some with the depression, but I couldn't tell that it helped my anxiety at all. I didn't notice any negative side effects while taking it. It just wasn't the one for me maybe because at the time my anxiety was more of an issue than the depression. The hard part about antidepressants is that you must be patient since most of them take at least 4-6 wks to see results. Every body is different, so you may have great results with Lexapro. Just follow your dr's orders and stay positive.
What about it is making you nervous? Many many people have taken it some it helped some it didn't. If you find you have side effects that don't go away or it doesn't help, you can always tell the doc and he can take you off of it. It takes about a month to start working, and less than that for any side effects to go away. You're starting at a lower dose, to get you used to it.
