I've been in Escitalopram for 5 days for anxiety. I tried Sertraline before but had bad side effects. I understand Escitalopram can take a few weeks. It's just the side effects are causing me to feel so tired, sick, even more anxious and completely detched from everything. I have a job am a mother and desperately want to get past this, at the moment I'm signed off work. Any ideas how long side effects last or when the medication benefits will kick in? Thank you so much
