Lexapro, an anti-depressant I assume, takes 4-6 weeks to work. I stayed with it (Celexa) for over 8 weeks and got worse and worse. Personally I cannot take AD's they make me feel really bad. Stopped Celexa (Lexapros sister) and was put on Buspar, anti anxiety. It has worked so well for me, I have not even had a depressive episode. You need to talk to your Dr. of course, and finding the right med is the hardest part........the waiting for relief can be almost unbearable, but hang in there, stay in touch with your Dr. and keep trying until you find what works for you. In the meantime, hang in there and best of luck on your move.
