Default Lexapro Day 8

So today is day 8 of the lexapro. Before I started taking it I had bouts with depression and my main issue was anxiety, now that I started the lexapro it seems as though my main issue is depression and anxiety equally. I know its very individualistic on how this stuff effects people but does it usually get better soon?

It really does seem to vary with people - are you still having any of those thoughts you mentioned before or has that gone away?

lexapro works faster than other ssris, but it does vary from individual to individual. You might go through several different changes emotionally but stick with it and you will feel the effects soon. I suggest you keep a journal in terms of how you are feeling everyday and give it a rating. Within a week or so you can look back and see gradual changes coming best of luck
