So I've been on Lexapro for 4 months already. The doctor started me off on 5mg and now my dosage is 20mg. I feel like the drug has never worked for me and every time I saw my doctor and told him that, he just kept increasing my dosage rather than prescribing me something else. I just stopped taking my medication 2 days ago and haven't had any side effect or withdrawals. I take that as a sign that it doesn't have any effect on me at all. Not sure what to do. My partner keeps saying I should see another doctor but it was so hard to open up to this doctor and explaining my anxiety that I feel I don't have to strength to go thru it all again. Has anyone here taken Lexapro and feel like it hasn't done anything for them? Or just your experience with lexapro?
