My Dr. slowly upped me from 5 mg to 15 mg over a 10 week period. I am switching from 62.5 Paxil to Lexapro. Dr. plans to slowly drop Paxil after the holidays. I have seen great improvement from where I was on just the Paxil so I know Lex is working, but I still need a low dose of Klonopin to get me through. My diagnosis is severe anxiety and OCD. I was hoping the Lex would work better so that I would not need the Klonopin anymore. Any feedback would be appreciated.
Hope2; Yes I agree with Janie on this sounds like you have a pretty good doctor and knows what they are doing if you have been on the Lexapro at the 15mg dose for 10 weeks you should be at the stable area of the blood level so really the doctor is giving it time to decrease the Paxil so you can get through the holidays better but you should have no problems going off the Paxil when the doctor says your ready to start tapering down slowly. Best of luck and enjoy your holidays glad you have found something
