I've been taking lexapro for 3 weeks 2.5 mg for 3 days then 5 mg for 12 days and 10 mg for the remainder of the 3 weeks. I feel worse anxiety is this normal will it pass. I thought I would be feeling better by now. I sometimes use temazepam to help me through the day. And I'm also scared to eat a lot because of fear of choking. Anybody ever had this happen to them ? Please any advice.
