I like the Lexapro a lot. It's been the most effective drug thus far. I'm on 15 mgs a day. I also take .5 mgs of Ativan everyday.
I take it in the morning because I prefer to be calm. They say if it makes you too drowsy then take it in the PM before bedtime. I'm so anxious during the day tho that I feel it's best to take it in the AM.
But now I'm not anxious at all. I've been on it for over 2 months now with good results thus far.
The side effects aren't too bad either but kinda suck when you wake up in the morning feeling panicky and your heart's racing.
LOL yup, and we have the chronic migraines too.
I get the desparation feeling too, and get more depressed as a deadline looms. I just want to avoid it and hide under the covers.
Anticipatory anxiety is what that causes. hehe
