> > Started my son on lexapro 9 days ago. Since he is very sensitive to meds started him on 2.5 mg. First 4 days he seemed a little better, so upped to 5 mg. He was GREAT for a few days, then I noticed he started to get a little agitated right before he was due his next dose (he takes it about 8:00 p.m.). Cut back again to 2.5 mg. Seemed to be a little agitated again the next day (yesterday). He also takes risperdal. I am trying to figure out what to do now......does this anxiety go away? (It's been 9 days since he started). Do I keep him at this dose for a while to see if it goes away, or do I incrase to see if that helps? Any ideas? HELP!

> Hi there, what is he being treated for? How old is he? For anyone taking meds you should move the dose up slowly. Stay at 2.5mg for awhile. Look at the link below. TAKE CARE!!!
> he is 16 years old. He has autism and possibly bipolar. He has been on a million meds.
