Will they go away? I started out slow when starting the Escitilopram. 2.5mgs and built up to 10mgs. I have also been taking 4 mgs of Xanax daily for 2 years. I have been on 10 mgs for 17 days today. I just want to feel better. By I feel weird. I talked with my Psych and she said it was normal and that it seemed to be working. I am going through a tough time with my marriage and also quit smoking at the same time of starting the Lexapro. I really need encouragement and advice. Please!!
