I’m 18 month’s post-menopause. I had a physical today and told my doctor about anxiety and panic attacks I’ve been having for the last 8-9 months. My thyroid and other blood work came back normal. He wants me to take a low dose of Lexapro. I’m on the fence about this because the side effects are similar to what I experience with anxiety. I am also concerned about starting a medication that might be difficult to get off of later on. If my symptoms are caused by menopause, this isn’t a permanent condition (I hope!) Just like to hear from folks who’ve tried this to treat menopause related symptoms. HRT is not an option for me bc of significant family history of stroke and heart disease.
