I have always had panic and anxiety issues. I have been able to manage it through years of therapy and classes but after 2 bouts with cancer and it putting my into menopause at the age of 32 I havent been able to shake it and Im beginning to avoid too much. Anyways I reluctantly started Lexapro after hearing great things. I started 5mg and hated how weird I felt. After a week I started the 10mg. I don't feel as bad as I did on the 5mg but I am still having anxiety and wanting to run out of every line and avoid shopping or being social. Anyways I've been on it for 2 weeks now and Im wondering if others took this long to feel relief or if I will maybe need 20mg.
