lexapro increased to 20 mgs. from 15mg. extremely jittery help!!!

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hey all!! I need some positive feedback.. I was on lexapro 15mgs. For 6 weeks. Worked very well. Then I had some break thru panic, and depression.. the doctor upped doseage to 20mgs.. now I'm feeling really shaky and jittery all day.. I started Monday of last week.. is this normal ? Will this subside anytime soon? I have been given .5mgs of klonopin 2x a day and .5mgs of xanax for break thru panic attacks.. it's keeping me out of the er and going crazy.. any positive feedback would be very helpful.. feel like I'm going crazy. Thanks all
