I've been on Lexapro (10 mg a day) for 3 weeks now and so far all I feel is a little less anxiety. My depression is still there though and I really don't feel any happier. I heard alot of people say it works pretty quickly...do you think I need a higher dosage or is 10mg a day the normal dose? Is there anyone out there that took Lexapro and didn't see any changes? I am kind of impatient bc I;ve already been on Zoloft, Welbutrin and Celexa!
well,i've been on lexapro for 3 weeks too,and it has only worsened my symptoms by far! i have so much anxiety and agiation,its hard to get through a day.these side effects started at week 2.hopefully they will go away,this is unbelievably bad,i tremor half the day
They say it can take up to 4-6 weeks to start working. Right now I am at my second month of Lexapro and I do notice a big difference. IF the meds are not working for you I would suggest you tell your doctor and see what the doc has to say. You may have to try a different med. If Celexa did not work for you I can see how Lexapro may not work for you either. Celexa is very simular to Lexapro. All the ssri's are fairly simular also. Have you discussed Effexor with your doctor? Hope I was of some help. Good luck, let me know how it goes for you ok?
