I was on Effexor for almost a month and had worse anxiety, insomnia and panic attacks then I did when I was off. My doctor gave me Lexapro but I am reviewing it and it says insomnia on this one too. Any one actually take Lexapro and like it? Any help would be great. Thanks.
Unfortunately, it is a trial and error sort of ordeal. What works for one, doesn't always work for another in the realm of antidepressants. My sister takes Lexapro with great success. Actually, now that I'm thinking of it, I know several folks who are on Lexapro that like it. Along with Zoloft it is the most popular antidepressant for anxiety. Gonna have to give it a try and wait and see.
Hello kittykat99. I was on lexapro. 30mg. Back 2005 and 06. I'm an insomniac so most drugs be they the reason for helping to contribute to insomnia, really will not effect me. Having said that, it did a fairly good job. Reason I stopped taking it? Tired. Always feeling fatiqued. As Laurie said, trial and error. Best wishes to you,
I was also on effexor and i am now taking lexapro, is all you have is anxiety? i wonder why you were given effexor? Lexapro works wonders for my anxiety. Effexor worked for my depression but it made me agitated all the time. So now they have me on lexapro 20mg for anxiety and saphris 5mg for depression. I agree its a trial and error. Good luck and keep us posted.
