> I just started on 20mg of lexapro Sunday to treat my depression and last night I had a horrible headache, so I took a tylenol and went to bed. While I was trying to fall asleep I started to feel like I couldn't breathe, then I got pains in my chest and my arms and hands, I was sweating all over, and I felt like I was going to throwup. This happened for a few minutes at a time, then went away for a few minutes. It happened a total of 4 or 5 times. I called my doctor and she told me that lexapro is supposed to get rid of panic attacks not bring them on. But I've never had anything like this before. I thought I was dying or was horrible! Has this happened to anyone else? What can I do to prevent this? I had to stay home from work today cause I feel all shaky and weak...and I'm afraid I'll have another one.

Why do I get the feeling your seeing a family doctor for meds. Even the company that makes lexapro wouldnt suggest 20mgs to start. Sorry but that seems ignorant to me.
