> > Hi everyone, I am taking lexapro for panic attacks.I also take imipramine. I was on xanax but my doc changed me to klonopin. Well I was taking 10 mgs. of lexapro but still having a bit of panic, so she increased it to 15 mgs. It is now day 6 of 15 mgs. of lexapro. Feel more panic in my head. Bit agoraphobic. Klonopin has relaxed my body but doesn't seem to stop the panic so much in my head. Doc told me to wait 2 weeks to feel better. Has anyone else had this problem? Does the panic go away? I am so sick of it. Plus I have a headache from the lexapro. Appreciate any advise. Thanks

Sorry to butt in, but could you tell me if the Celexa stopped the anxious thoughts in your head? Also, how long did it take to work. I started Celexa about 3 1/2 weeks ago (1 week at 10 mg, 1 week on 20 mg and now at 30 mg) after weaning off Effexor XR for two weeks. I am still feeling a bit anxious (but the increased anxiety could be from the Depo Provera shot I had at the beginning of August). Anything you can tell me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.
