For me, Lex did upramp my anxiety for quite a while, maybe 3-4 weeks. Using a benzo consistently during this time was VERY helpful. At about 5 weeks, things started to look really good with it for me. It was gradual which also made it difficult to see progess, but it was worth the wait for me. I began and remained on 10 mgs the entire startup.
Lex has been a good choice for me, but it's so variable individually with all these meds.
