    Lexapro still affecting me, help ...

    I took it for 12 days and had to stop, because every day the lexapro woke me up meticulously every morning at 7 am exactly, like CLOCKWORK. Most times it was because I needed to go pee, and once I would get back to bed I could not fall back to sleep, I would have racing thoughts, and feelings of anxiety for hours laying there.

    I stopped at 12 days, but it's been 2 weeks and now and it is STILL happening. My Doctor said it should be out of my system by now, and that terrifies me. Makes me feel like it's left a permanent side effect on me, or what's happening to me is now psychological.

    My doc is also offering me hydroxyzine to help me sleep again and to help with the anxiety.
    Haven't decided if I should.

    Somebody please tell me this is normal that the lexapro is still lasting and that it WILL go away.
