I’ve been on Lexapro for almost four weeks (the last three at 10mg). I have terrible, increased anxiety and nocturnal panic attacks while getting used to the drug. I asked my doctor for clonazepam and I’ve taken it for the last two days. She wanted to put me on Seroquel but I didn’t want that drug. Has anyone used these two with success while getting accustomed to the Lexapro? She has me on clonazepam 0.5 mg for 10 days and then .25 as needed for ten days. Praying this will help me get through the worst of the ramped up anxiety and let the Lexapro do its job.
Lexapro and clonazepam - has it worked for you?

I used clonazepam for the first few weeks when I started Lexapro to stop the anxiety attacks and the night time terrors till the Lexapro had built up enough. The dose was .5 like yours. My doctor said half a pill at breakfast, half a pill at lunch and a whole pill at bedtime. Worked like a charm. After a few weeks I started reducing the use of clonazepam and then I only used it at bedtime periodically. I’ve been on 10mg of lexapro now for nearly four years. I still use clonazepam once every two weeks or so if I can’t sleep. Hope this helps.
