I took Paxil for 14 years for GAD and it was pooping out on me. I have transitioned to Lexapro. I've been on Lexapro for about 6 weeks now. At first it was like I had nothing working at all but I had a few side effects, restless legs, some stomach upset. After 4 weeks on 10 mg I bumped up to 20 mg. I was still having some morning anxiety & was feeling a little teary, although I could tell it was starting to work. Now, after 2 weeks on 20 mg, I am finally forgetting about having anxiety again. I had a great night's sleep last night & woke up sleepy & wanting to go back to bed, not bolting awake with anxiety like I had been. Lexapro is definitely working for me! I did read that 10 mg seems to work for depression, but often 15-20 mg is needed for anxiety. Good luck.
