Hi everyone, been a member but haven't posted in a long time. When I started it wasn't even on this message board since I never thought my symptoms with anxiety were even treatable. It wasn't until a doctor diagnosed me with Depression and anxiety. The funny thing is that I never thought of myself as having depression although I knew the anxiety thing was right on. My whole life I missed out on so many things because of it. I would have anxiety attacks during social events and just hated being in the spotlight. Finally 2 weeks ago I went to the doctor and he put me on Lexapro (10mg) and it has been 10 days on this medication and WOW what a difference I already feel. And I am grateful because reading around it's hit or miss with it. The first night I had hot flashes and woke up dizzy. But from there on out the knot in my stomach is getting less and less tight. I do not get stressed out as much and just feel much more confident and calm. This is only after 10 days so I am very happy about it. My question is, is this the full effect? Or will it get better still with more time? I am Male and 25, and regret not knowing about this sooner. But better late than never I suppose. The weird thing but also good thing is that I am not getting the bad side effects. I actually have an increased appetite and my sex drive (which was suffering) seems to be getting better. Could this be because my anxiety is finally letting the rest of my body function?

Thanks for any help
