Nov 8, 2018 · Lexapro side effects in Depression & Anxiety

Your welcome @tiffany22. I know for sure it was medication induced. In my case I had a panic attack. First time ever having one. It freaked me out so bad for a week after that I was having really bad anxiety and a physician I worked with prescribed me Lexapro and said it would help. The first month or so I took it it was hell for me. The anxiety would start when I woke up till I tried to go to sleep. I couldn't sleep as soon as I would drift off I would just start panicking. I didn't sleep for awhile untill I was prescribed the klonipin which helps whenever I have an attack. It sucks I know but it will pass soon. Now I really don't have any anxiety. Sometimes I feel anxious but over all I feel fine and haven't had to take any klonipin in the last month or so.

Hi @tiffany22 , I started Lexapro 10mg back in June for generalized anxiety. The first 2 months was difficult. I was also prescribed klonipin to help with the anxiety. I feel fine now it took a couple of months to reach the therapeutic level.

Nov 8, 2018 · Lexapro withdrawals? in Depression & Anxiety

I'm on 10mg. I was reading reviews on it online and it seems to help people with anxiety and feeling anxious. I will definitely have to get me some. Where do I find it? Also, should I take a pill every other day or cut them in half. I'm sorry for all the questions, I am new to this and a little scared after reading what can do to people.

Nov 8, 2018 · Lexapro withdrawals? in Depression & Anxiety

Hi everyone! I have been taking lexapro for about 4 months. I had a really bad panic attack back in June. After the panic attack I was having really bad anxiety and a physician that I work with wrote me a prescription for lexapro and told me it would help me out. The first two months were horrible! I was having really bad anxiety, couldn't sleep, very irritable, I felt like I was loosing my mind. I'm feeling better now but no longer want to be dependent on something everyday to make me feel "normal". Any tips on what I can do to ween myself off and what helps with the withdrawal process? I don't have a family doctor or insurance. The doctor that prescribed the medication no longer works with me.
