I hope this stuff works, I know its different for everyone.

1) Do you take it at morning or night

2) How has it helped your anxiety?

In regards to questions #2, paxil is a life saver for me but the side effects (urgh). If lexapro doesnt work to well I will go back to paxil I believe
lexapro and paxil are both the same type of antidepressant
these meds can be taken any time, with or without food

if they stimulate you, take on waking
if sedated, take before bed
confirm with pharmacist

I take mine in the evening a few hours b4 bed. I have been on week 4 and I noticed my anxiety level went down within 4 days. Has been great so far I'm on 5mg. My panic has not surfaced and my depression as well. Good luck! Jules :)

I was on Lexapro for about 3 months, and during my stint with Lexapro I became very lathargic...didn't feell that my head was on right. Very slow. I continued to have anxiety attacks even on Lexapro, so I switched to Effexor. Great much better! Also...a side note...work out. This is a great way to help with the depression as well.
amen!! everyone sees the same thing. work with the drug. one that works for me may not work for you. i am starting 5mg. of lexapro in a week. have heard nothing but good about it. am starting in the morning since this class of drugs tends to give me insomnia. if it makes me too tired during the day i will take it in the morning which it seems most people do and then a klonopin at night if needed for sleep.i have post traumatic stress due to my daughter's death 8 years ago ,GAD, menopause symptoms and diabetes so i am very careful how i use any of these drugs. i don't give anything more than a week with really bad side effects. i leave for work at 6:00 a.m. and don't need to feel wacked out for the day. good luck to all.
