I've always noticed that my anxiety comes to a head a week after my period. My medication is 10mg of Escitalopram. The first four days, I had to take half a dose. Now I'm on a full dose. My dad did some research on it, so I have a pretty good idea as to what it does. I need it for depression and anxiety. But still, my period skipped for three months and then went back to normal and I noticed that my depression has gotten worse and my anxiety will reach a high at least a week after my period. What's up with that? Note: I was also on the depo shot, but I've gotten off of that after almost a year of having it. I've had a history of anxiety. Also, I don't know if it's just me, but I feel that I wasn't as anxious when I was on the shot. Weird. So... Maybe a low amount of a hormone causes the anxiety to worsen?
