Hello. I am glad you are still maintaining ok until you see your physician.
Lexapro is indicated for the treatment of Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). This is one of the reasons that it has gained it's popularity. This info is available from many of the drug sites online and not just the official Lexapro site.
I would still ask your physician if you could have a med for anxiety to cover you until the Lexapro is working. It can take up to 4 weeks for the full effect of the AD's to start working.
Of course these are my personal opinions..................good luck and keep us up to date on how it is going.

We are here for you, so go armed with your notes and be assertive in requesting what you need.............Your right, 4-6 weeks is what the norm is on most of the AD's kicking in, we hope for the 4 weeks. Lyn is a wonderful example of someone who knows her rights as a patient. ((((((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))))
