Anxiety board

I am on lexapro, and its finally starting to help me, but each day, I'm so used to being anxious before the meds that I still wonder if I am going to be ok on that particular day. I will be in the shower calm as can be--thinking I hope the medicine keeps working....I hope I don't have a panic attack out of the blue, etc. I don't obsess over these thoughts, but they occasionally cross my mind maybe once or twice a day. It's like the anxiety is masked and you are afraid sometimes that it's just going to pop out again when you least expect it. Does anyone else feel like this?
Hi Moniqu1,

I have been taking Lexapro for approx. 5 wks. I am on 15 mg. now. When I was on 5 mg. and then 10 mg., it sort of felt like the anxiety was just right under the surface. Like at any minute it could pop out and I would be anxious. It rarely did. And so far, on the 15 mg., I do not feel that way at all.

Hope you can get these feelings under control. Take care. Wannabe
