My doctor recently told me that I need to up my Lexapro from 10mg to 20. I have battled anxiety and panic disorder for over 2 years now. Lately going through alot in my life my anxiety has been really bad. I am scared of medications. I do not like to take them period but when I don't my head and chest hurts really bad. I would just like some input on anyone that has taken Lexapro. How long have you taken it? Did you start out at 10mg? If so do you feel better now if you have upped to 20mg? I took 20mg for about a week and I woke up so sleepy the next morning. Is it my twisted panicky mind or does it make ya groggy? I have been taking the 10mg for probly a year now. Any input is very appreciated!!
I don't have much input on the matter..but when I only had one dose of Lexapro, it gave me a panic attack worse than anything I've experienced and gave me stiff neck and shoulder muscles for days. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.. but everyone's different.
