Hello, I currently taking Lexapro 10 mg and todayarks a week. I can see a slight improvement with my depression and anxiety. When i first started the medication it made me more depressed and anxious, but everyone said to keep taking it and stick it out. Today i see this has lofted however i am having trouble falling asleep. Does anyone know how long this typically last? I took a unisome pill which has helped me calm down but not fall asleep.
Btaylor2012; morning if this just started its possible it well go away in a short time but if not many people have to take as someone else said seroquil,or trazodone to help with the sleep but they also seem to help with the lexapro give it a week or so still problems check with your doctor.But remember you still need to rest so lay down like your going to sleep read or whatever and rest the body and mind while your medication adjust itself. Have a good day. Chuck1957
