I've been on Lexapro 10MG for about 3 weeks now, and I'm still having problems mentally. Mainly just racing thoughts. Like I'll listen to one song and I just get one part stuck in head for the rest of the day which causes my anxiety to come back up. Please help!
Hi, Coutinho!! It will if you're patient and give it time to work. For most people it takes 3-4 weeks to begin feeling the benefits and 6-8 weeks to reach full therapeutic blood levels. Try to relax and not see small things as a major setback because it will only make your anxiety even worse and inhibit the drug's actions.
Have you ever considered speaking with a talk therapist about your anxiety problem?
