In the past while on it at 10 mg.'s I was also taking hormones and supplements; along with having assumed off and on thyroid problems and that med as an addition occasionally. With all of that in my system I always had late afternoon anxiety mind racing that reoccured at least 6 hours before my next dose.I finally succeeded in weaning off most and am presently off all but the ecitalopram, clonazapram, and a couple of vitamins. Yet I still have that aweful anxiety and mind racing that happens long before my medicine is due. My doctor suggested that I increase the escitalopram to 15 mgs that may be I am metabolizing it too quickly or it is just not enough. Has anyone else had that problem with lingering anxiety? Sorry if it looks like I ramble.
