I have always struggled with anxiety but recently I was having several panic attacks per day. I went to my doctor and she prescribed me 10mg of escitalopram. Yesterday was my first day taking it and I've never taken any other sort of anxiety medication before. Right after taking it, I was fine but after a few hours I began to feel a bit odd. Like someone put cotton in my head. It wasn't too bad last night, but this morning I woke up and I feel kind of foggy and distant? My friend said its most likely my body trying to get used to it, but I wanted another opinion on if I should be worried or not. (I am 18, and I am already planning to tell my mom as soon as she gets home from work.)
