Re: Does anyone here take Lexapro for panic disorder?
Thank you. I took my first dose last night. 5mg, and I too will work my way up. I will stay on 10mg for two weeks, then see about going to 20. I did have night sweats. I hate those, because I'm already having hot and cold flashes already. I asked my Dr. if I could be in perimenopause (I just turned 36, but my greatgrandma completed menopause at 38), and she said no, hormone tests were fine, and that my hot flashes are just from anxiety. Anyways, I hope that does go away. I woke up, not too dizzy, tiny bit nauseated, not bad, but did have a headache and was anxious, but that is also why I'm on the med. I took a half a Xanax and it has helped. I just hope it will eventually take away my anxiety and panic attacks. Everytime I have a panic attack, it makes my heart race and I go into an SVT attack. (supraventricular tachycardia) I am on a beta blocker for it right now, but they are trying to find the cause of my heart condition, which they think is anxiety induced. I hope this is the drug for me. I'm really glad to hear it is helping you. Any stomach pains with it? Michelle
