I have been taking Lexapro for 2 months - my pdoc just increased the dosage from 20mg to 30mg. I was functioning at 20mg -going to work etc but still had disturbing suicidal thoughts and depression some days so she increased the dosage. I'm trying to hang in there but the s/e make me feel like I'm getting the flu and I start to feel really tired about 1 to 2 hours after taking the dosage. On the plus side I feel calmer and am alot less likely to feel irritable and do not argue with my husband over stupid things. i want to get better so much but I don't think I can function on this dosage. I'm going to stick it out for one more week than call my pdpc. Anybody else out there on 30mg? How do you feel? Does it get better?
