Does lexapro work for panic? I've been on it for 2 months now .15 mg for 3 weeks. It seems to have helped some but if I don't take klonopin I wake up panicing. I don't like taking medication. Please help I am seeing a new dr Monday.
Lexapro and klonopin are a good combination for anxiety and panic attacks. You may need to have the dosages adjusted. Just be honest with the doc on Monday, Explain your symptoms and trust the doc. Finding the right medication regimen is a trial and error ordeal, but worth the effort when you find the right ones.
Some of these ssri's make you feel panic even after being on them 4 a while... but if it is helping you that is something you will have to fight through and as your system gets adjusted hopefully it will get better in x... if it doesn't maybe the dr may adjust dose or put you on something all together..It is suppose to from what I have been told help with panic but not everyone responds the same to meds/ have to move on to trying another..I say discuss your concerns etc with your dr and see what he/she has to say..God luck/ keep us posted..
