> Do anyone have any advice about taking Lexepro for panic attacks. I just started it after having tried so many thing that make me sick and unable to sleep.
Keep giving Lexapro a chance to work for you. I cannot understate how much it helped with the panic anxiety. I'm v. lucky that the only side affect I seem to get is a slightly groggy initial hour or two after taking, but not enough to inhibit daily activity or work, just enough to throw some exsessive yawning and slight mental lapse (which could be from being me... =).)
As for advice, I take it with food (works for me.) I take it with a an Omega-3 fish oil pill (I try to get at least 3 in a day.) There may be a link to Omega-3 and depression/anxiety stuff, check web or this site for more info.
I hope you do well on Lex.
