Hello. I am a 22 year old female and I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder and I also deal with some persistent OCD. Over the past winter, my anxiety has thrown me into a mild depression. I have been going to a Psychologist and she recommended Lexapro when I asked her about medication. I talked to my primary doctor and she prescribed me 5mg for a week, then start 10mg. With the 5mg, I was having mild side effects: (tiredness, increased anxiety, night sweats, and some mild nausea). I take my dosage a few hours before I go to bed and last night I started my 10mg at 9:00pm. I woke up at 1:00am in a complete panic mode. I was sweating and very nauseous... I almost felt like I could throw up but I did not. I woke up this morning around 7:30 feeling off. Just felt like I could lay in bed all day, sleep, and my stomach still feels off. I also deal with Emetophobia, so the nauseousness is not fun for me. I just want to know:
How long till I feel better?
Will these side effects disappear?
