My father's been a cop for over 30 years and two weeks ago he mentally just shut off. Doctor believes he's suffering from depression and anxiety attacks. He's lost 18lbs in two weeks from not eating. His symptoms are hands shake, can't sleep, tightness in throat, loss of appetite, etc. He just simply isn't my dad anymore. Doesn't want to work, watch tv, or pretty much anything. Doctor put him on Lexapro two weeks ago and still no change. Doc says in may take another two weeks to kick in but I think maybe my dad has something else wrong with him.

I do not suffer from depression or anxiety so I'm asking anyone who has, are these normal symptoms for this condition? If so, does lexapro work and when does it take effect? And if not, does anyone know what the heck this is?

Any comments are greatly appreciated!
