Amos I don't know about
lexapro but I do know some meds will increase you anxiety. It is more likely, however, your anxiety disorder getting worse. I believe that is a very low dose. You may need to talk to your dr in a week or so about
uping the dose. Also are you on anything for anxiety until your lexapro kicks in. There are meds out there that can control your anxiety and panic attacks until lexapro kicks in. They are things like Klonepam, advain etc.
