I just went back on Lexapro after being off for about 10 months. The last time I took it, it took about 3 weeks to work and then I was fine. This time, it took 6 weeks. I took an ativan (.5 mg) in the am for the first few weeks but then it started to kick in and I no longer needed it. Maybe when you are on an AD and go off and back on it takes longer to work? Not sure about that but hang in there - it took a while for me but now I feel fine.

I have been on 10mg of Lexapro since April and it has worked fantastic for my anxiety. It does take a few weeks to kick in and I had Xanax to get me through when I really needed it. It has been 6 months and I can honestly say that it is a very rare occasion that I have to take a Xanax. I just quit smoking on 9/11 and my doctor said that it was a good possibility that my anxiety would increase when I stopped but I have not had any problems. Give it some time and hopefully you will have great results like I did. Try to relax...constantly thinking about and stressing over it is only going to increase your anxiety.
