I started Lexapro 11 days go. 8 days at 5mg, now up to 10mg. I’ve been having horrific anxiety and depression, and while I can fall asleep okay, I can’t sleep past 2-3 am. I also have adrenaline bursts. I reached out to my doctor and she said the side effects would go away in 7-10 days, and she prescribed 25mg trazodone, and to stop taking Zzzquil. That dose of trazodone used to knock me out in the past, but no longer.

I’m reaching out for hope. Did anybody else have sleep maintenance insomnia and heightened anxiety that got better? I feel like I’m going nuts.
