I just need reassurance from someone that takes escitalopram that they start feeling better maybe after 5 or 6 weeks. I am only on 10 mg but my doctor does not want to raise my dose yet due to the side affects of going up. Anxiety is not as bad but days still struggle. But the depression is a lot more harder sometimes. Just need reassurance.
Try to be patient and stay positive because it does take a little time before the medication is fully effective but you should be feeling better and better quickly now.
"How Long Does It Take For Escitalopram To Work?
Sleep, energy, or appetite may show some improvement within the first 1-2 weeks. Improvement in these physical symptoms can be an important early signal that the medication is working. Depressed mood, anxiety, and lack of interest in activities may need up to 6-8 weeks to fully improve."
Personally, I took Lexapro for over 7 years and it worked wonderfully for me.
Best regards and I hope it works well for you too. It's an excellent choice for both depression and anxiety disorders.
