I took 5mg of generic Lexapro for 3 days and then increased to 10mg. I felt no side effects on the low dosage but when I increased I felt waves of nausea for the first 2 days and then increasing anxiety and depression for all the days following. By day 7 on 10mg I felt like I was going crazy- more anxious than ever, tingling in my arms and legs, restless legs, no appetite, trouble sleeping, headache. I'm now on day 7 and don't know how much more I can take. I am 26 and this is my first time ever using medicine like this. Any help, advice, encouragement would be much appreciated.
