Hi Liverette,

My name is Kevin I have been dealing with anxiety since I was 13 I am now 30. I am now taking 10mg of Lexapro. I use to take kolonopin when I was younger in the treatment and it was my golden ticket to getting relief from anxiety. I had switched medicine so I went off the deep end and was afraid of taking any medications so now im scared to take kolonopin even though I know how awesome it was at making me feel so much better. Its hard for me to take any other medications even over the counter. Xanax can be addicting as well but if you be careful I think you will be just fine the biggest thing is getting relief from being anxious. Just the past 3 weeks I have been having a hard time with anxiety coming back I was on only 5mg of lexapro for like 5 years now I had to up it to 10mg. I am still wait for it to kick in it has been 1 week and half. I hope you get a good nights sleep tonight I know how hard it is getting a good nights rest.
hope this helps
Kevin
Hi Kevin,
Thank you for taking the time to write to me. I am glad that you were on 5mg Lexapro for a maintenance, so in the case of anxiety episode, you can always increase your dosage to 10 and since it is in your system, it won't take too long to be effective.
It's been 4 nights now that I have been taking the Klonopin .50mg to be able to sleep. I was very hesitant at first but then I realized that no sleep was making me so sick and anxious. I upped the the lexapro to 10, 3 days ago and now waiting for it to kick in. My appetite is just a little better but nothing like before. I started with anxiety issue but now I feel like I have more of a depression.
From your experience, how long does it take for the Lexapro to lift you up a little? And does it also help for depression too?

Thank you again for responding to my thread. Have a nice weekend and a Happy Easter!
Liverette
