I've been on lexapro for 12 days now and I do think I felt an initial boost in my mood within this time which has been good. I'm not where I want to be by a long shot but I'm encouraged by the initial benefit. I'm taking it for anxiety and depression, my anxiety is worse than the depression at this point but I do realise it's early days for everything to improve. I was on citalopram for many years until it either stopped working or my doctor messed up my dosage, she changed it 6 times in 8 weeks! Just wondering is it 4-6weeks before you consider dosage changes or is it 8-12 weeks? I realise that lexapro is the sister drug of citalopram and works quicker so that's why I'm wondering if it's the earlier time frame before you change dose.

Ps I changed dr from last one who caused all the problems.

Thanks
