Re: Paxil vs Lexapro
Thanks for your response. I'm on only 10mg of Lexapro. I don't really have panic attacks or other occasional symptoms that would be helped with xanax. I suffer from daily dizziness (which used to be more extreme before I started Lexapro), other minor anxiety related symptoms (some fatigue, minor shortness of breath/ chest pain, borderline high blood pressure, occasional weakness in right leg, and occasional increase urination), and finally a previlent morning and evening symptom which I've had for years. This symptom occures just before I fall asleep when I have a heart beat throbbing in my head, and also when I first wake up when I have the throbbing but also my whole body is shaking. I haven't found this last symptom to be too common but other people on this board with anxiety do have it. I'm typically a relatively calm person and am likely supressing most most of my anxiety. I'll be seeing a doctor in a few days. I've found that in anxiety related issues, where the symptoms and effects are less obvious to the doctor, the patient should often be asserative and suggest when they think more/ different medication is needed.
