HOW LONG TO WAIT FOR RELIEF FROM LEXAPRO?
avatar
onecat posted:
Hello:
77 yr old -sudden severe anxiety/depression after several months of other medical upheavals, seems ''final straw' was being advised of ''possible -future''surgical procedure (TUR) but currently only a 'candidate' (quote/unquote) ;
Put on Lexapro 10=no help -doseage upped to 20mg.
Has periods of 'relief' but not 'sustained' but finally yesterday had full day (!) of relief .
Is 6 wks of Lexapro 'enough' time to expect results ? or is it a matter of ''one step forward/two steps back until ongoing relief is achieved ? thanks in advance -
