I think that 15 and 20 are both good options. I presonally am doing very well on 30. I went from 20 to 30 about 4 months a go. The Lexapro has taken away my depression, but I could use a bit more energy.

If it were me, I would "officially" go to 20 mg. By that I mean have your doctor call the pharmacy for 20 mg pills. Then, if you would like to start with 15, cut the pills in half, then cut the half in half. This will save money because the 20 mg pills cost about the same as the 10 mg pills.

Try 15 for a week or so, and then decide if you need 20. OR start with 20 for a week or so, and see if you want to go down to 15. Either way should be fine.

When you cut the halves in half, you can probably do a better job with a razor blade knife than with a regular pill cutter.
