This is the first time I have ever done this but I am really looking for some helpful answers. I have been suffering with anxiety and depression for about ten years now. I started taking 10mg of Lexapro when I was 18. At first I was taking 5mg for a long time and about a year ago I raised my dose to 10mg and it felt great. But just recently my anxiety started getting out of control again. So I was wondering if I should ask my doctor to raise my dosage to 20mg or if it seems to soon. Nothing in my life should be causing me to feel this way and I was also wondering if your body could just get used to the dosage of the meds in your system???
