Natty - I made a big mistake in starting off at 5mg of Lexapro. I assumed that moving up to 10mg if necessary would be painless as my body would already be used to it. Boy was I wrong.

Unfortunately ANY up-change in dosage on this drug makes you start from scratch. You feel worse than you were before for the first 10 days. Get used to the bathroom, you'll see a lot of it. I could barely eat anything most days.

If you are past week 2 and into week 3 and you're not feeling "relief", yes, I would go up to 10mg. My doc said that is the lowest "theraputic" dose. Obviously check with your doctor first.

I love this medication...but it's horrible the first few weeks...horrible. HORRIBLE! Then it starts to work and it's like YES! YES! YES! :cool:
