Discussions that mention lexapro

Anxiety board

Hello and Welcome.

I am fairly new this board but not the health boards. I suffer from GAD too. Sadly for me I do have some other health issues that can be serious but I blow them way out of proportion. So I put my GAD on top of my list as the worst condition.

I tryed the excerise and diet route but it didn't do anything for me. I am currently taking Lexapro and also lorazepam. Whether you chose to take medication is up to you. I went medicine free for several years now but I need a little help this time. I know what you mean about going back to your old self again. That is all I want.

Discuss medication with your doctor again and see if it's right for you. You sound like you don't like to take meds because you didn't take it for your high BP. Do what's best for you but sometimes we all need a little help.

Good luck to you and I hope you find as much support here as I have.
