Unfortunately Lexapro doesn't work for everyone. The affect you're experiencing is not uncommon and your Dr may need to put you on something different. Lexapro caused more anxiety for me so I weaned off of it. Talk to your Dr about this and see what they can do to get you started on a different kind. Good Luck!

Hi Savannah, before giving up on it completely, think about this: did it help you at first? If so, you may benefit from an increased dose. Either way, mention to your doctor so you can get on your way to feeling better, whether it be from a higher dose or a different med. Here's to feeling better SOON!
