Hi, I'm 25 years old and have had some anxiety since I was a teenager. For about 6 months now my anxiety has got a lot worse. I was sick with mono for about 3 months and became extremely depressed and anxious for a few weeks. When I finally got better, the depression pretty much went away but the anxiety still is sticking around. My psychiatrist uped my lexapro to 30 mg from 20 that I was on, and I was doing ok on it for about a month and now for the past two months I'm constantly feinf anxious and on edge. Just wondering if anyone else has or is on this dosage of lexapro and wondering if I should talk to my psychiatrist about changing meds or what. I'm just wondering if it's possible the 30 mg is just too much for me now and it needs to be backed down and that's why I'm constantly anxious. I hate feeling like this. I get tremors at night and have obsessive thoughts and everything running fast they my head and nervousness. My next doctors appointmrnt is in 2 months thinking I should go in before then. Any advice or comments are welcome. Thanks!!!
