    Still anxious on lexapro/cipralex but sleeping much better

    I have GAD and never really took anything for it other than occasional ativan. My GP put me on 10 mg of cipralex/lexapro about 8 weeks ago and for the first time in months I was sleeping through the night but still anxious. She upped the dose to 20 mg two weeks ago and I still sleep but my anxiety is not much better.

    Anyone have any ideas......I'm thinking I need to try something else for anxiety but I am so happy to be sleeping better.

    I found that lexapro made me a little hyper. So I switched to celexa ( an older version of lexapro) which is a little more sedating. It works better for me. Hope this helps. Godbless

    I have found that 5mgs. of Lexapro helped my panic attacks quite a bit. More doesn't always mean better. They wanted to put me on 10mgs. but I am sensitive to meds and took it into my own hands, and kept it low, at 5. Occasional Xanax also helps a lot! Klonopin would really help you.
