It took me a good solid 6 weeks before I felt ANY benefits from Lexapro. In fact, my anxiety symptoms actually *increased* during that first 6 weeks. I had some of my worse panic/anxiety symptoms after beginning the medication. Once I passed the 6 week mark, my symptoms improved, and I found some good relief with that medication. I am currently trying to get off of the med, which is a completely different story, but I didn't have any major complaints with that medicine (other than a slight weight gain) after it kicked in. I'd say hang in there for a couple more weeks. Also, talk to your doctor about it. My doc perscribed a benzo for me to take at first until the Lexapro kicked in, and that helped too. Good luck!
