An urgent call for increasing Lexapro 5mg? Sounds bizarre to me. For me (and I don't know all of your symptoms, so take this with a grain of salt), I found Lexapro to be very, very weak. An increase of 5mg would do little, if anything, for my anxiety and panic. It was only at the highest dose--40mg, that I experienced some benefit. At 10mg, it was just, like, barely working. I didn't have any sexual side effects from Lexapro, even at 40mg, while I did with Celexa at 20mg (anorgasmia, deadening of sexual interest). I would think a higher dose of Lexapro would make the withdrawal zappiness go away, but..that's just me. My sense is that...your doctor doesn't have enough experience with these meds...a psychiatrist would definitely be a better bet. Regular doctors, in my experience with anti-depressants, many times, they are prescribing from limited working knowledge.

Anyway, hope that helps.

Chris
