I just recently turned 24yrs old and am a 125lb female. I was recently prescribed 5mg Lexapro for GAD. I have been taking it for 3 weeks and I feel increased anxiety, can't leave the house without a prn lorezapam. I canceled my birthday trip to Florida, I took a leave out of work. I don't feel any less anxiety if anything I feel more. I have lost some weight and my appetite has slowly been coming back to normal. Low sex drive, and recently some nausea that's also been keeping me home. Wondering if I need to just push through and keep taking it or up my dosage?
