Hi there. I normally post over on the anxiety board, but I often read over here because I find things to be pretty helpful.
Anyway, I am on Lexapro 20 mg taken every night at bed time. My doctor told me this is the highest dosage available. I keep reading everywhere about people on 30 mg and 40 mg of this. I was totally under the impression that 20 mg is the highest recommended dosage.
The reason I ask is because the Lexapro seems to work for me for a while, then poops out pretty quickly. My doctor says if the 20 mg stops working, we'd try something else. Knock on wood, it has been doing pretty good for me since July...I started on 5 mg, went to 10 mg, and now am at 20 mg.
I have tried looking up information about this all over the internet, and can't seem to find anything.
Thanks to whoever answers!!!
