I'm currently on 10mg of Lex, its been working great so far but within the past two weeks, I feel as if I need to go up to 15mg. All the issues that Lex has done wonders for are creeping back slowly but surely. I'm about to start a very stressful year as well.

So I was wondering if this would be the appropriate thing to do? I will speak to my neuro of course but I would like outside info because I start talking to him.

And whats the difference between 10 and 15mg? How different would one feel?

I would really appreciate anyones help/replies.

Hi Carly, I havent taken Lexapro but I have heard many good things regarding it.  I do know that when your taking an antidepressant it is sometimes necessary to increase or adjust the dosage to reach a good balance.  I dont know what a threaputic level for Lexapro is in regards to millagrams.  I would address this with your doctor especially if your have reoccuring symptoms of depression.  It is always best to try to stay ahead of it before it become too bad.  I am sure others will post to let you know of thier experiances with Lexapro.  Please do post again and let us know how you get along. 
Take care

3 months, but it stopped working as well a couple weeks ago. After christmas , probably a duel effect. plus the long winter ahead doesnt' help
