I've been on 10mg of Lexapro for anxiety since August 15th. It took me a bit to get used to it, had lots of sleep issues and crazy anxiety when I first started taking it, especially in the mornings. I've been doing great on it since my body got used to it, early October, sleep well, no anxious feelings or thoughts. Yesterday I had a doozie of an anxiety attack when I developed a severe migraine. I was able to do a fair job keeping the anxiety at bay with utilizing CBT and deep breathing exercises, actually managed to run 4 miles during the peak of the anxiety attack. Had a rough morning today, some anxious thoughts, warm and cold feelings like I used to get when my anxiety was full blown. I did have a glass of wine on Thanksgiving, half a drink on Friday and have a beer on Saturday (first time in 6 months). I'm concerned that either the Lexapro is no longer working or the slip in anxiety was caused by the alcohol. If it's the latter, I'm fine without it. I'd rather forego alcohol and feel good than what I've experienced. OR, is this the normal process of SSRI's, ups and downs even after almost 3.5 months of being on it? Any insight would be appreciated
