I recently have experience severe anxiety, panic attacks and insomnia after taking the birth control pill I was prescribed Lorazapem to sleep and am taking 1.5 mgs. Am also taking between 12-25 mgs of Seroquel.
Am also taking Propanalol 25 mgs for high blood pressure.
Recently started a low dose of Lexapro to help with anxiety and to wean me off of the Lorazapem. The starting dose for this is 2.5 mgs.
Just wondering if Lexapro is better for anxiety than Celexa? I've had 3 docs tell me their is no difference and that Lexpro is a cleaner drug to take with less side effects. One doc told me that Lexapro can make anxiety worse during the first week or two but then should level off.
Does Lexapro insomnia stuff stop the longer you take it. yesterday was first dose and was up almost all night. Was told this would improve. Very nervous about being on the benzo and really want to wean myself off.
Thanks for your help
