I started out slow on Lexapro too. They wanted me to take 10mgs. right off the bat. No. I started slowly, like you and worked up to just 5. I took myself off of it last September due to weight gain but had to start again in December. Eh.

BUT, it did help with panic attacks. I had to go back on because I couldn't shake the separation anxiety from losing my Mom.

The side effects do lessen and pretty much go away. Pretty soon you will forget you are on it. Maybe slow the dosage down a bit? But give it a bit of time. One of the worst parts is being so sensitive to meds and the fear and anxiety and worry if you are having side effects and panicking because of it.

Xanax or Klonopin helps immensely with those fears.

Let us know how it goes. Good luck!
