Expect.....anxiety to come.

Okay, but be aware that most antidepressants may initially increase anxiety including Lexapro, sometimes a lot. It is from the extra serotonin activity, but this settles down after a few weeks as the brain reduces serotonin synthesis and expression to compensate.

That is quite common too. SSRIs are very safe drugs.

I'm sorry you didn't continue with the Brintellix, but Lexapro is a very safe and proven drug that's done wonders for anxiety sufferer's.  Good luck.
