Lexapro dosage strengths

Common Questions and Answers about Lexapro dosage strengths


Avatar m tn Have you started tapering down your dosage per your doctor's instructions? Just make sure you are not adjusting dosage or quitting it without talking to your doctor first; just ensure you follow his/her instructions. Doing it on your own can cause many unpleasant symptoms that you would not really have to endure if you take it as prescribed.
Avatar f tn Hi Please remember that Eltroxin only contains thyroxine (T4 hormone) at different strengths BUT Diotroxin contains thyroxine sodium 90 micrograms and liothyronine sodium 10 micrograms (T4 and T3 hormones). As far as I know Diotroxin comes in one strength only. Please keep an eye on your T3 levels. Ask for them to be tested as well when you test your thyroid levels.
Avatar f tn When I started Lexapro my doctor also gave me a small does of Xanax and has recently changed me to a small does of Kolonopin until we found the right dosage of Lexapro. Just this week we are actually changing my dosage of Lexapro to 7.5mg because of a few small side effects. Keep up with it and stay in contact with your doctor. Good Luck.
Business woman2 25, 37.5, 50, 75, and 100. Also, the extended release forms of Venlafaxine capsules come in many strengths too: 37.5, 75, and 150. Most of the tablet forms will contain Lactose and Gluten. Some of the extended release capsules do not contain neither Gluten nor Lactose. It will help me very much, if I know the dosage form and strength. We might be able to find you a supplier that do not use Lactose and Gluten in its Venlafaxine. Thanks and be well.

Avatar f tn I used to take Zoloft at 200Mgs a day. Lowest dosage is 50mgs a day and even that dosage is too low for most people.
712802 tn?1274645485 I have been taking Lexapro for six to eight months and now I am having extreme fatigue and shortness of breath. Had my heart checked and it is o.k. My pcp thinks Lexapro might be the culprit so he suggested to my pmp that I be swithched to Savella (Milnaciprin). My pmp did not tell me how to switch - should I stop the Lexapro for three days then start the Savella; or three weeks, or just go ahead and stop the Lexapro one day and start the Savella the next? Any advice appreciated. Thanks!
Avatar f tn I was taking 300mg of Lamictal, 10mg of Geodon, and 40mg of Lexapro when I had a manic epsiode. I had never had an episode while on meds before. Is this an unusually high dosage of Lexapro for a bipolar to be taking? I remember the pharmacist had to get special approval for prescribing the dosage.
Avatar m tn My physician prescribed Prozac and Xanax and my anxiety shot up...similar to what many of you have shared. I only took it three days. When I told her my reactions and some of the things I learned here she told me I shouldn't feel that way so soon and switched me to Lexapro. Has anyone taken this medication for depression, stress and anxiety?
Avatar n tn I can tell you that even when you find the optimal dosage, that it will take a good few weeks at that dosage before you feel better. If the Lexapro fails to produce a full response than you can always discuss with your doctor about maybe adding a second medication to boost the effect.
Avatar f tn I just received my order of hcg and wasn't aware it came in different strengths. I got the 10,000IU/1ml. The other posts only show how it's done for 10,000IU/10ml. Can someone explain to me how to properly dilute the solution I have to get the proper concentration for weight loss? And what dosage is best for the best weight loss results?
Avatar f tn My doctor is taking me down from 10mg of Lexapro to 7.5mg to see if this might help some with the fatigue and the dreams that I have been experiencing. I have been on 10mg dosage since November and while it has helped it just may be a bit to much. Would any one happen to know if I will experience any side effects? I know that this is not much of a switch but he recommends slowing reducing rather that simply cutting the dosage in half.
Avatar m tn Hello, So i've been on Lexapro 10mg for about 4 weeks now and since a couple of days ago i've been feeling very tired and sleepy to the point that all i want to do is sleep. Will this effect go away or am i experiencing the true effects of Lexapro? Thanks.
Avatar n tn m not exactly sure what the Max effective dosage is for Lexapro, but I used to take Lex for 2 years and was prescribed 30Mgs a day. Some people find effectivness at the 10 or 20Mg dosage. Just kind of deprends on the person and how they react to SSRI's and their resistance to such medications.
Avatar m tn HI, just was wondering about an increase dosage of Lexapro. I started at 10 mg and my doctor increased it to 20 mg. I've been taking it for 2 1/2 weeks and have noticed an improvement over the 10 mg. I've been having more good days then bad which is great. Will it take 4 to 6 weeks to receive the full benefit from the Lexapro from the increased dosage? Thanks for the help.
Avatar n tn I am now on 40 mg dose of rabeprazole and 10mg of Lexapro. Is the use of lexapro causing this ulcer related symptoms? Can i reduce the dosage of lexapro to 5 mg by breaking the tablet into 2 ?
Avatar n tn The drowsiness does seem to subside for many patients a few weeks after starting the medication or after the dosage increase. Taking Lexapro at bedtime may reduce daytime drowsiness. If the drowsiness does not resolve, your physician may change your prescription to a less sedating antidepressant.
Avatar n tn I am a 20 year old female and I've been on and off Zoloft for several years now and have finally realized I just need to stay on antidepressants. The Zoloft has changed my life with regards to my depression--I am finally able to be the person I know I am. I take 75 mg zoloft a day but it has killed me sexually. I still have a sex drive but I literally have almost no sensation and thus can never orgasm--and thus having sex isn't as appealing. My Dr.
535882 tn?1396576685 Hello, I have been taking Lexapro since November and just changed to the lower dosage just last week. I take it in the evening because it makes me a bit drowsy. It usually take 5 to 6 weeks for the Lexapro to even out in the blood but some notice changes sooner. Xanax is a quick acting Benzo (tranquilizer) it is used for quick action to stop anxiety and panic attacks. Once the effect wear off though the anxiety just returns.
Avatar m tn Equivalencies are generalizations, and you are an individual. Besides, Pristiq is a different class of drug than Lexapro. Lexapro is an ssri while Pristiq is an snri. And if it were me, which it isn't, I'd start at a low dosage and work my way up on any medication so I could see how bad the side effects were and the lowest dosage at which it works is.
