Increasing Lexapro Dose - Advice Needed

Posted by celextolex on April 21, 2004, at 14:39:09

I've been on 10 mg Lexapro for about 4 weeks (was on Celexa before that). I noticed only slight differences. Finally, yesterday I felt like I had a small break from the depression and anxiety, but this last weekend was hell and today is mixed. My pdoc told me today that I should increase to 20 mg; I suggested 15mg, but he thinks that's not enough and strongly recommends that I go up to 20 mg.

Will I notice a difference? Shouldn't I hold out at 10 mg for a little longer to see if things get better? Should I go to 15mg or 20 mg? I'm afraid of increasing to high because I don't want to start getting side effects again. Please let me know your experiences.
