scaredycat- How long for the lexapro to work? I'd say about 3 weeks is when it started working for me, I didn't reach the full effects until I had been taking it for 6 weeks though (where I could skip a benzo every other day)
Honestly I couldn't eat very well either. My appetite has just come back about a week ago. Then you'll really wonder about the "empty stomach syndrome" because no matter what I eat I still feel a bit hungry LOL
I didn't stop feeling anxious for the first couple to 3 weeks on it, but after that the ride is pretty smooth for me.
If you have any other questions... feel free to ask :)
