This is probably normal until you get use to it in your system. Did he say it was for anxiety or for sleep? I take xanax for anxiety but it also helps me sleep and helps relax my muscles.
I hope that the lexapro works for you. I guess you have to take it and if it makes you groggy, take it at night. I can tell you that it takes six to eight weeks to reach full potential. But could start working in the meantime. So hopefully you will feel better soon.
If you have side effects at all, they should go away in a couple of weeks.
Best wishes to you.
