I started lexapro nov 21st at 2.5mg then went on 5mg nov 28th. I am at two and a half weeks 5mg and my anxiety and depression has worsened even more than when I was med free! Anyone have a similar experience and ended up with positive results? I'm thinking of giving up and going back to Zoloft since at least I know Zoloft works for me, was hoping lexapro would work better! This heightened anxiety, crazy thoughts and even some increased depression is making me want to give up. I'm now scared to even increase my dose since going to 5mg gave me anxiety through the roof. Would like positive answers only please :) need some encouragement
