Again, I can't speak specifically to SP, but I do have lots of experience with anxiety disorders, and I agree with Utopizen. You might be one of the lucky ones who benefits from SSRIs like Lexapro, but my experience with SSRIs has been awful. I prefer to stick with safer, more reliable drugs that have a longer track record, fewer side effects, and a much higher efficacy rate for anxiety problems. Benzos fit this profile, and Klonopin is the best for many (although of course, not all).
