Sun, May 5 7:37am · Query from someone having problems starting Lexapro in Depression & Anxiety

I Have been taking 10 mg Lexapro for 5 days. With Initial side effects I’m more uncomfortable taking Lexapro than before I started. I know its supposed to take 4-6 weeks for Lexapro to work. Should I tough it out and keep it u. Do anti depressants really work.

@contentandwell Thanks. I tried cutting dose in half with only one capsule, it worked well as I slept a good 8 hrs but still too tired all day. Because cant get smaller dose with pill cutter am droppingOxazepam but have been sleeping 7-8 hrs with no med so maybe it was a good transition off of lunesta. Thanks.

Thanks. 20 minutes to get to sleep and 6 1/2 to 7 hrs sleep with one wake up B/R stop is my desired sleep. i will go back to see my MD and either get a very small dosage of oxazepam or go back to my previous occasional use of 2mg of Lunesta. ( Maybe!)

My doc switched my sleeping medicine from Lunesta 1-2 mg to 20 mg Oxazepam and I have tried it three nights and sleep excellently maybe too many hours , 8-10 hours and I felt knocked out all day long after.those nights . Anybody have any luck with Oxazepam? Anybody have any results good or bad with that drug? is it really for sleep help or is it a tranquilzer for anxiety? It ,may be a mistake for me.
