I can't get in contact with my doctor but when I increase my lexapro dosage to 20 milligrams I get hyper and irritable. Will it go away if I keep taking it? Or should I stop it or go back to my previous dosage of 10 mg which didn't cause these problems?
I was on 10 mg. for 10 days and then they upped it to 20 mg. I am off of it now, but 20 mg. was a nightmare for me. Too much for sure with side affects like you mentioned. I was on 20 mg. for 4 weeks and it was terrible. I would recommend either stick with the 10 or forget it all together. This medicine is awful In my opinion.
