Lexapro 2nd go around need feedback

I am taking 10mg Lexapro (generic) again for some intense anxiety regarding health issues - the anxiety was making them worse vicious cycle.

I took 20mg Lexapro (generic) before April 2013-2014 and then tapered down to 10mg until April 2016. Had few sides coming off and was pretty good w anxiety for about 18mons.

I just started 10mg Lexapro again on Oct 23 2017. I didnt ramp up I just went straight at it. Sides were tough but not horrible. After 10days feeling okay but would feel a bit anxious in AM before I took meds (730am) and then I'd get some anxiety in afternoon.

Who has experience with Lexapro a second time? I picked Lex becasue i tolerated it well the first time. Will it be effective this second time? I am considering going up to the 20mg level in a few weeks if I dont see some resolution with my minor anxiety.

Thoughts? Feedback? Thanks

hi and welcome. think it this way, you wash it out, body adjusts, first cranky-par for the course, then you go back and your receptors are trying to recognise it again. sometimes second time is successful, sometimes not. i recommend a psychiatrist is the best as they are the medication specialists.
