I am currently taking alprazolam .5mg roughly 3 times a day and it has been working. I was having between 8 and 12 attacks a day now I'm having b/w 1 and 3 a day. I'm planning on starting Lexapro 10mg tomorrow and am truly anxious about it because I don't wanna depend on no meds with real intense side effects. I am 96 pounds and have severe trouble of swallowing, I try to drink ensure about 4 a day bt even that's hard. If you have any advice at all I sure would appreciate it a great deal.
