I had an anxiety attack last week, not quite a full blown panic attack (have had those in the past) after many years of no problems. I had gone off lexapro over many months, then a couple of weeks ago started taking crumbs of it and sometimes klonopin for sleep as some stressful stuff happened and I felt down and or stressed at times. Nothing I couldnt deal with, but then last week I got sick, took cipro, after I took the second cipro I had waves of anxiety sweep over me (I had also had tea, which I stopped cold turkey after that) and didnt feel right all day. I took 5 mg lexapro, and .25 klonopin that evening, upping it to 10 mg and .5 respectively after seeing a doc last Saturday. I have sometimes taken .25 additional klonopin in the morning, b/c that is the worst time for me. Trouble is I am so groggy and my job starts early and I have to interact with people and drive there. I am taking some time off but don't want to lose too much time. I suspect I am having ssri intitial anxiety on top of what I already have, and probably depression from either the disorder or the klonopin. I just want it to work faster, and in the past I remember lexapro being rather gentle when I got back on it again. The last time I had a real bad time was a dozen years ago but I was able to recuperate over two months of vacation, but now I am in the middle of the work season so that adds to my anxiety, even though I know I can take time off if needed. At times, particularly towards evening, I sometimes feel better. What is the soonest I can hope for some significant improvement in the morning grogginess and general anxiety/depression? I have noticed lately that my stomach is quieting down, less gurgles/pain/discomfort than before, if that is a sign of hope. Thanks!
