I have been on Lexapro 10 mg off 8.5 years with great results, combined with CBT. Last fall I felt an increase in anxiety and panic. My doctor advised to go to 15 mg, it that caused nighttime panic attacks so I have been taking 12.5 mg for about 6 weeks. It isn’t really helping. I am considering going up to the recommended 15 mg. It is hard for me as I have extreme fear of medication coupled with ocd. But I’m ready to feel better! I am scared Lexapro just doesn’t work for me anymore, so if anyone has success stories on finding relief after increasing to a therapeutic dose, please share!
Also, any good news on cross tapering from Zoloft to Lexapro?
