I started taking 10mg of Lexapro on March 1st and continued for about two months. The only thing I experienced was a sudden euphoria whenever I took the pill, and then a gradual sink back down into depression. Even that eventually wore off. It didn't help with my SA. My psych upped the dose to 20mg at my last appointment (April 20th), and it hasn't seemed to do anything yet. He also put me on Xanax XR for my insomnia and anxiety. It's not working quite as well as I'd like, but it's better than nothing, I suppose. Hopefully he'll switch me to another AD at my next appointment, as well as to another benzo.
