Still have the same feelings I had prior to taking Lexapro.
Hi, Bee! Unfortunately, this type of medication takes time to work as your individual metabolism has to "re-align" in a fair trial:
"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.
Escitalopram (Lexapro) | NAMI: National Alliance on Mental Illness"
Try to be patient... the wait will be well worth it!
