Numbness and Tingling

Hello,
3 weeks ago my Dr. started me on Lexipro. I am feeling better but I still have tingling and sometimes a little numbness (doesn't last too long) in my legs. Does anyone else have these symtoms associated with your anxiety? Does anyone have any idea how long it will go on before I no longer have these symtoms or notice them?
Thanks very much,
Mark

Re: Numbness and Tingling

Marc,

I have never taken Lexapro, so not sure howlong until you get relief, but just wanted to tell you that my main symptoms are numbness & tingling in my arms, head & scalp-- it is an awful feeling- like you want to rip your skin off & get out of your body.
I am on Remeron ( AD) and Buspar & I am still getting episodes of this- I hate it. It does not seem to last as long now. Have been on Remeron since May & Buspar about 6 weeks.
Have you asked for an anti anxiety med to go along with the Lexapro ? From what I have read it may be helpful.

Feel better !
