Hey this is my first time on any mental meds, because i have been having so much anxiety over the past year. My father died about 5 years ago and i have never been the same since (i think i might have had post dramatic stress, but im no doctor). Anyway my doctor prescribed me lexapro, and told me to start with 5 mg and then after the first week move up to 10. I have only taken one dose so far and i already feel the effects.
It does keep me up tho and makes me feel restless. So when do you guys take it? My doctor told me it would make me tired and that i should take it at night but i dont know how that is working out.
