Hi! I'm new here and looking for some help. I started Escitalopram 3 weeks ago for my anxiety. It started up again after I had some health issues. The first time I took it was 2-3 years ago and had no side effects. This time around I have had pretty much all of them. Currently I still have shakiness in my hands and some GI issues. I am still getting increased anxiety off and on but thankfully not having it all day long like I was at the beginning. I have always taken my escitalopram before bed. I find that after I take it ..within half hour or so I get extremely jittery and my anxiety increases drastically.... also as I start to doze off I get body jerks. Could it be that the dose is too high for me? Should I cut back or is this normal and is it still early to expect the side effectsto be gone? It's hard to stay on this when the side effects make me feel so terrible
