Hi,

I am currently taking 20 mg of Lexapro for anxiety. I also have depression but anxiety is my main issue. I started taking 5 mg for a week then increased to 10 mg for a week and now I have been on 20 mg for a week. How long does it take Lexapro to start working ? I've noticed some improvement but I'm hoping it will help me more.

Any feedback is appreciated. In the past I have taken Zoloft and Celexa and they weren't helpful. I take Clonazepam 1 mg a few times a week but my doctor said Clonazepam can't be taken long term for anxiety.

My main question is: Does Lexapro help anxiety and how long does it take to work?

Thanks
