how long before lexapro increase works?


Recommended Posts

It's very subjective but it will probably be 2 weeks at least. I wouldn't get your hopes up. Lexapro doses above 20mg haven't been proven to be anymore effective than 20 =[ tell us how it goes though.

I went to my doc because i've been on 20mg of lexapro for over 2 months and its helped with anxiety but not depression & ive been suicidal, so she's doubled my dosage. This freaks me out that it might be all for nothing!!!

Ive been on as much as 40 mg of lex a day, sometimes 80 by accident, and I definetly feel an increase in mood stability/anxiety when I increase the dose. I feel it within about 10 mins as well. So i guess im a bit of a freak in that regard.
