I’m going into week 6 on Tuesday of taking 20mg Lexapro which I just started last Monday on the highest dose. I have anxiety and panic disorder. How long does it take to fully kick in so the anxiety goes away?
Usually, 4 to 6 weeks. X
It roughly takes 6-8 weeks for full effects. But for panic disorders, it may take 12 weeks to start seeing improvements. You can give the medication few more weeks. Address your concerns to the doctor if your symptoms does not improve.
