    Re: 15mg Lexapro - but how long until positive or any effects?

    So a quick update, it has been a week on 20mg and its been a rocky road as usual. Headaches, dizzyness, dreamy feeling and of course my old friend increased anxiety. Yesterday I had a really good day but today has been weird again! I also heard on another forum that my clock resets every time I go up a dose and that I can expect another 4-6 weeks of side effects, so that has put a bit of a downer on me again.
    The story continues....

    It would be unusual for the side-effects after a dose increase to continue for 4-6 weeks. Around 10-14 days is more likely. It takes about 7 days for citalopram plasma levels to settle to a steady-state after an increase (or decrease) after which side-effects typically begin the diminish. However, as with everything about ADs, YMMV.
