I went to see my Dr. yesterday for my anxiety, it has gotten really bad the last month or so and I have had two panic attacks pretty recently. I told him what all was going on and he prescribed me Lexapro. Have any of you been on this med before? What was your experience with it? Did it seem to help your anxiety? I'm nervous for some of the side effects I may have. I didn't read all of them cause I was scared I was going to read one that was really going to freak me out about taking it. My Dr. said that I will have nausea for the first week and that it can take up to 3 weeks for me to see any change in my anxiety. I'm not looking forward to the nausea at all and I'm ok with it taking a bit to relieve some of my anxiety, but I hope it won't be too long before I see a change. Also since I didn't read all of the side effects, I know that on some commercials for other depression/anxiety meds that some of the bad side effects include suicidal thoughts, I know I would never do anything like that but I don't know if this medicine would make me feel that way. Also I've heard from people who have taken it say that it will make me just not care about anything. Is that true? Has that happened to any of you? I start taking the medicine today so I guess I'll just have to see for myself what affect it's going to have on me but I just wanted some info from others who have had experience with Lexapro, I guess to put my mind at ease.
