hi Emma, good for you that you went to dinner and shopping... we have to face our fears... and you did even though you had some sympthoms. you did go out... an isolated life is not good for us.. staying home all the time..

I know this because I do it myself..


hugs, Caren
I know it's hard, but give it a bit more time. I have been on Lexapro for 5 weeks today. I started out at 10mg. At first I was frustrated I would still have anxiety attacks, less frequent, but still having them. They have since dwindled down and down having less and less each week. My doctor upped my dosage to 20mg's yesterday. I think that this will do the trick FINALLY!! Once I gave it some more time, it started doing what it was supposed to do. Good luck!!
Thank you all for your replies. I saw my Dr yesterday and she verified what all of you have been saying all along. I am just not giving it enough time to kick in. And while I know that some of my anxiety is better it is not where I want it yet. She told me to just be patient and give it a little more time. I am still having some GI issues and she said if that did not go away we might have to change meds but she was hopeful that some of that was just anxiety still. I believe that because I have that as a symptom when I am really anxious. Thanks again!!!!!
Hi Violet! Thank you so much! I think I am getting better. I am still having some gastro issues as late as yesterday. However, it could have also been a 24 hr stomach bug. I seem better today and no gastro pain at all. I am doing better with getting out of the house too. I entered our local state fair and was able to get out and take my items to the fair without the usual anxiety I have before I leave the house. I also returned to work last Friday. First time in a month and did ok. I hope this means I am on my way.

Thanks again for all your support!
