This is coming up on week 3 of switching back from escitalopram to brand name lexapro. I've been battling high anxiety and anxious thoughts for a while. Last week I had a small episode that left me feeling uneasy and today I woke up with a feeling of heaviness in the chest and very aware of my breathing. I just started exercising again two days ago and have been trying to carry myself forward even though I dont feel like it. I'm still very fearful, worried, stressed and just a smidge hopeless. I have a huge move coming up and not sure what will happen to me but I guess I'll just try and ride it out. Haven't taken a xanax for over a week and a half.
Question for those with lexapro, did upping your dose from 10mg to 20mg give the same side effects or does it differ usually? I'm wondering if upping my dose when I move would be a better choice or doing it now? or just keep waiting it out to see if the brand name will help level me out again.
