Discussions that mention valium

Anxiety board


the antidepressants you mention all have different dose ranges so dont compare them
a typical lexapro dose range is 10 to 20, maybe go back to 10 for a while
its common for antidepressants to make your anxiety worse at first

valium always helps but many docs wont prescribe it

if you cant tollerate lexapro 15 but are OK on 10, then stay on it for about 6 weeks as it may eventualkly work for you at 10

there is the irony with the antidepressants that they usually make your problem worse at first, most docs sadly rely totally on drug co sales reps for their prescribing info, and of course the reps minimise thr possible early side effects so docs often think the anxiety sufferer who has a bad reaction, is just exagerating
