How long for lexapro to work

If anxiety is one of the side effects, how long does it take to go away? I have been on it only 11 days but from experience with other ad's I usually am over the worst side effects in four days. By now I am sleeping better and feeling better. I am feeling a little better but the anxiety is not going away. godbless

In my experience it takes about 4 weeks to get the full effect. You need to hang on.....

Re: How long for lexapro to work

with me it I think it took 4 to 5 weeks. If you are feeling better than keep at it.

Try to think of it as energy instead of being anxious.
