Started on 10 mg of Lexapro over 6 weeks ago for anxiety. The first 4 weeks from day one was amazing. I felt wonderful, motivation, ain't nobody gonna break my stride, ain't nobody gonna slow me down. In the fifth week I tried concerta for add. I took the concerta for two days an realized it wasn't for me. Then for a week after that I was in a foul mood. It was like all the progress from the lex was wiped out. I called my doc and she said to increase to 15 mg of Lexapro. I did for 3 days and then I felt nothing. No good, no bad, apathy. I didn't even have the will to go to work one day. I couldn't concentrate/ get invested in my favorite tv program, I had problems! So, I lowered the dose to 10 again. I feel better just not as good as in the beginning. I also have a jittery anxiety for three hours after I take it. I have Xanax but I want to take it when I'm actually upset, not jittery from Lexapro. What to do?
