hi everyone been suffering from anxiety for 2 months now. mild- to moderate to extreme. my doctor recommend Lexapro. i took it yesterday at 10.30am and by 3pm was feeling extreme aniexty! i feel so scared to take it again. What should i do???
did ur doc explain that it will get worse b4 better i have no experience of ur drug but i have with others and yeah wat ur feeling is normal try sticking it out!! they can take 6 to 8 weeks to work if u cant tolerate the side effects ask ur doc for a low dose diazipam to help u through the rough patches!!!
I would talk to your doctor as I'm sure your doctor does not want to make it worse. If yesterday was your first dose I would wait and talk to your doctor before you take another one.
Thanks i cant get a hold of my doctor because of weekend. And no other doc will make give me an answer as they didnt prescribe it for me. I think maybe i should split the 5mlg. Take 2.5mlg now and 2.5 before bed? Or later during day? Maybe then i can ease into it?
Did you continue with the lexapro? I just started today and am nervous, but need relief from my deoression and anxiety
