I am on day 10 of Lexapro. I have been prescribed 10 MG but Ive only been taking 5 mg to start. Initially I got headaches those seem to have subsided, I still get fatigue. Doctor advised me to take at dinnertime to avoid nausea that seems to be working. I still sometimes wake up at night with anxious feelings then seem to experience episodes of fatigue throughout the day. I feel nervous about upping the dosage. Do you think its wise to go right to 10mg or do 7.5 mg and do a stair step effect. Im not feeling any huge difference in my anxiety yet. At times Im fine but at other times the anxiety is still there. I just didnt think it would be this hard :(.b I just want to feel better.
