First, really glad that you've finally found something (lexapro) that works for you!! Sounds like it's been a long time coming.

I'm pretty new to the scene of AD's. Started on 10mg Lexapro 3 months ago now. This is the first time I've been on any sort of AD, and it seems that I've been really fortunate to start on something that works for me and others so well!! Can't imagine what a struggle it has to be to experiment with so many AD's only to find that they aren't effective, etc.

So, I don't know that I have any answer for your question about dosage. My pdoc started me off on 10mg. and it took about 3 weeks before my body finally accepted it - had to go through the se's like everyone else.

I have heard from other posters, though, that they have been prescribed some heavy dosages. It just seems to me that what may work for one may not work for another, referring to both type of AD and dosage. So, the doctors do their best at prescribing what they think will work best as a starting point. Then, if adjustments are needed, they go from there.

But, what do I know? Again, I'm still new to all this and learning as I go.

Hopefully, the 5mg will continue to work for you. Please keep us posted and remember that we are all here for you.

Take Care-
Arrianna
