... Hi Sarah - My anxiety didn't really go away until I went up a notch to 20 mg, but I wasn't really having any side effects, it just wasn't calming my anxiety at 10 mg. I can't remember, are you taking your lex at night? I would just go up to 10 and take before bed and see how you feel. If you feel terrible go back down to 5, or even cut one in half and take 7.5 mg.

Agitation that had me climbing the walls. I had to drop the dose , then slowly increase it over 4-5 weeks. After about three weeks I really noticed improvement. I'm now taking 7.5 mg for the past few days. I... (8 replies)
... If it is purely anxiety (& not depression) you're battling, had you considered Buspirone? It's the only med I've been able to find that specifically targets just anxiety (and is for long term use). I had good results with it for ~ one year (took a bit of experimenting with dosage, I finally ended up trimming the 10 mg tablets down to 7.5 mg, 2x/day which was just right... (4 replies)
... I started on five and it was too much for me. I broke it in half for a week, then took five. After two weeks I took 7.5 and then finally ten. Now I have no side effects but it was a rough first week for sure. Now I feel great and thank God I rode it out. (21 replies)
