Hello everyone, I recently took generic Lexapro (escitalopram) for 3 1/2 weeks in an effort to deal with panic attacks and overall anxiety.

Even though I started off at a very small dose (5 mg moving up to 10 after the first week) I still had increased anxiety to the point where I was visibly shaky and didn't want to leave the house.

My generic is manufactured by Torrent. Does anyone have any experience with this or any other generic manufacturers for Lexapro? I'd love to know if they worked for you or not.

I'd also be interested in hearing from anybody who has taken the name brand and if you think there is any difference.

Basically what I'm trying to find out is if Lexapro simply isn't a good drug for me or maybe I got a bad generic version. Thanks so much for any input!
