Takes a little time for the medication to start working. Lexapro is one of the faster acting antidepressants, but it can still take upwards of a month or so to really feel the difference. Remember the medication can only do so much toward helping us with our anxiety and depression. Somethings like negative thoughts take time to retrain the mind to think differently.
