Question for Pharmrep regarding Lexapro Anxiety

Posted by alaskagirl on September 23, 2002, at 21:34:15

Pharmrep, can Lexapro be used to treat anxiety?
I was on Celexa 2 years ago for depression/anxiety
and it worked within 5 days. However, it later
caused me to develop colitis. I've tried numerous
drugs since then, but nothing has worked as well
as Celexa.

I started Lexapro 9 days ago at 5mg
for 5 days (for anxiety, no depression this time),
and have bumped the dosage to 10mg for the last 4
days. My stomach has tolerated the Lexapro well,
however, it's not helping at all with the anxiety.

If Lexapro does help with anxiety, does it take
longer than the typical 1-2 weeks Lexapro treats
depression?

Also, I'm suffering from insomnia and am wondering
if this is a temporary side effect that will go
away, or if it will last with continued use?

Thank you for your help!
