Hi there. I am not sure if you have read any of my posts or not, but I have been on Lexapro 10 mg at bed time since June 26th. It has worked WONDERS for me. I was to the point of feeling like I was in one constant panic attack for about 3 months straight, and I became agoraphobic...where I couldn't leave my house, and I even lost my job. I felt like things would never get better for me.
Finally, I forced myself to go to the doctor, since I was tired of feeling so bad. He put me on Lexapro, like I said on June 26th. At first, I was still using Xanax pretty heavily, but now, nope, I haven't used Xanax in like 9 days...which is HUGE. I feel much more like myself, and I am getting out of the house DAILY. It is great.
Indeed, drugs work differently for everyone, this is true...I would though recommend you trying out LExapro, of course, if your doctor agrees. I feel like it saved my life!!!
I wish you all the best!
Dealing with panic and anxiety for 8 years off and on...right now more on than off. Major health anxiety as well!
New found issues with agoraphobia...working on that too.
I am NOT weak, I am just down right now. I am doing what it takes to get my life back!!!
Best Wishes to all...Tammy
