Hi Everyone,
I am from the UC site but I take lexapro also and I wanted to know
if anyone takes more than 20 mgms a day of lexapro?
My doctor told me 20 is the maximum dosage of this drug is this true?
Thanks so much for any info.

Hi Donna,  Welcome to the depression forum!  I am sorry we are a little slow with the response...Your post ended up at the bottom eyes ....I don't take Lexapro, so I cant be of much help there.  But we do have several members that do take it.  I think 10-20 mg is pretty common from what I have seen.  Hopefully others will post replies.  I just wanted you to know your not forgotten.... :-)   Take care...
