I wanted to do another quick ask on this, is what MobileChucko saying correct about lowering the Lexapro dosage? Meaning will I receive no therapeutic benefit from 5mg of Lexapro now that I have been on 10mg?
I am doing okay on 5mg. 10mg was better from an anxiety perspective but worse from a side effect perspective. But if 5mg no longer has a therapeutic benefit then maybe I will ask my doctor to switch me to low dose of something else.
I can't really tell if the 5mg is having any benefit at all. A lot of my anxiety symptoms are back (nervous talking to people at work), but if the 5mg is doing anything at all then I want to stick to it. 5mg is giving me some awesome, sheet drenching, night sweats and I am clenching my teeth at night but I would prefer more than just side effects to give me some indication that it is doing something
MobileChucko and Insights, what are your opinions?
(I have anxiety so of course I have obsessively been thinking about what MobileChucko said!
P.s. My current solution to "tight jeans syndrome" - wear a dress! Much more forgiving and quite flattering for summer!
