Anxiety board

I'm on Lexapro. Great med for me but it does take 4-6 weeks to take effect and the side effects prior to that are nasty. Once it kicks in and the side effects abate it has been a very good drug for me in combination with Buspar (no Xanax for me)

Have a talk with your doctor on what might be the right "mix" for you. SSRI's are difficult in that it takes a very long while for them to work and the initial period is horrible.
