From one Jasmine to another!!
Yes, take the Ativan! It will help with the anxiety you are feeling, which is a common side effect of starting Lexapro (or other SSRI's). Just take the Ativan, as needed, and give the Lexapro a couple of weeks to settle in. If you are still feeling anxiety then, talk to your doctor. I've just re-started Celexa, Lexapro's cousin, after an almost 2 year break. I had worse side effects this time too, but after 16 days (and YES, I counted them) they have gone. I think your body can change in the way it responds to, or metabolizes a drug over time. I take Klonopin with it, since anxiety is my primary diagnosis, so don't be afraid of short term, low dose benzo use. It can be very helpful.
Best wishes
