> Hi...
> I have pretty bad panic disorder with agoraphobia. I say 'bad' because I'm anxious throughout the day even at home. I've been on Paxil for 8 years and am currently battling withdrawal from that crap. PDoc put me on 10 mg of Lexapro a little over 5 weeks ago. I've noticed I am less prone to Panic Attacks (in fact I haven't had one!), but I'm still anxious throughout the day. So my question is, should I give it a little more time to kick in or increase my dosage? Lex even effective for anxiety?
> I am currently down to 2.5 mg of Paxil (the end of that nighmare is almost in sight!)
> Current Cocktail:
> 10 mg Lex
> 2.5 mg Pax
> .25mg x 3 Xanax
> Thanks. ;)

hi jake
i'm taking lexapro for anxiety
i am in week 13 on 10mg
i didnt start feeling better till week 9
i feel more balanced; little things arent such a big deal; i even think kind thoughts of my wicked evil boss

i think you should give it more time
from what i have read, it takes a little longer for it to help anxiety than it does depression
