Did your doctor start the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lexapro</span>
at 20mg? It's usually tapered up in 5mg increments, and 10mg is the recommended dosage
by the manufacturer for anxiety (20mg for depression). That doesn't mean an individual will react that way, we're all different and metabolize drugs differently, so one person might require a different dosage than another, but I think the problem might be starting you at the highest normal
dosage, 20mg. You might end up there, but it's not where you should start.
