I was put on Lexapro 10mg almost 3 years ago for anxiety and I will be going back on it this Monday. From what I remember back then, it took about 2 full weeks of 10mg usage to really begin to feel good. Like most, I weened myself up to 10mg over a period of 7 days (took 5mg for seven days and then the full 10 mg for another two weeks). I used xanax for breakthrough anxiety during that time... and just tried to keep myself as busy as possible. My anxiety is always worse when I'm alone (b/c I'm afraid that something will happen to me and nobody will be here), so I try to surround myself with my family as much as I can. I also try to get outside and exercise or take long walks as often as possible. Sometimes this helps, sometimes it doesn't... but at least it's occupying my brain a bit.

I'm sorry that you've been having such rough days. I had a really bad one today as well. Had to drive 40 miles one-way to bring some ice hockey equipment to my husband and barely made it there. With my state of mind, I definitely wasn't a safe driver. I chose to drive home on a tablet of xanax b/c I didn't know how I was going to get back into that car otherwise. Came home and slept for a good 4 hours.

You definitely aren't alone... but hopefully there are brighter skies ahead for you!
