What dosage are you on? Are you tapering slowly up, or did you start at your current dosage?
When I was put on Lexapro, I was started at 5mg. 10mg is the recommended dosage for anxiety treatment, so I was tapered up to see what side effects would occur and to minimize them.
I'm starting to feel better, well better than I had been. It's touch and go, I feel okay and then have spells of not feeling so great again and feeling increased anxiety (unprovoked). Question. I take the medication upon waking in the morning, I notice that for probably half the day I feel normal, I don't feel anxious or feel any side effects really from the medication (no unprovoked anxiety or stomach issues, etc.), but as the day wears on I seem to start feeling anxious again and have mild stomach upset. Is there a point in time that this levels off and I will begin to feel "normal" all the time, or will I perhaps need to take more than 10mg to get to that point?
What my psychiatrists have done with me for years is divide my dose in two, so when I was on 10mg of Lexapro I took 5mg in the morning and 5mg in the early evening. That's how I've been dosed for years.
I had the exact Same symptoms. Up and down. I'm on week 3 ...seems to be getting better. How are you doing?
