    Question ESCITALOPRAM Start Up Effects

    I was started on Escitalopram 10 mg 26 days ago for anxiety. My anxiety made it feel like i was choking. I thought i had the side effects beat as they went away for about 4 days last week, but have now returned the past few days. The most bothersome is the heat / sunburn feeling i get in my arms and legs. It comes in waves. It hits me from the time i get up until later in the evening when it finally eases up. Has anyone else gone through this, and how long did it last? My dr said it's normal and safe side effect, but there is a chance it may not go away. It did make the choking feeling go away though.
