How long before the panic attacks went away. I have ptsd and have had severe anxiety since.
Depending on your doctor and your sensitivity to medication the usual starting dose is 5 or 10 mgs. Lexapro is one of the quicker acting antidepressants used for anxiety. You may notice it working within 2 weeks and reach therapeutic level within a month. Don't be alarmed with initial side effects when starting this med. They usually subside within the first couple of weeks.
