I'm on 20mg of Lexapro and 50 of topomax. The combo seems to be working really well. I've been on the same does for almost three weeks. Initially I too was depressed--wouldn't get out of bed to go to work. Wishing someone would run into me when I did drive to work--stuff like that. The MD raised my Lexapro from 10mg to 20mg and it really did make all the difference. I noticed the difference very soon after the increase. Anyways, my suggestion is don't worry about increasing the dose of lexapro--if it doesn't work go back. It worked wonders for me!
