So, I'm taking Lexapro for the first time- my gp is starting me off on 5 mg and within in the next week moving me to 10 mgs. This is a result as me having intense panic attacks and not sleeping at all. I ended up in the a and e with a super bad panic attack. They did a ecg all good. Yet I still felt terrible and having attacks.

I had my first dose today, I had a rough stomach, I'm having some reflex now which is causing some pain and burning plus my heart rate seems to be kicking it up a notch. I sometimes I feel really dozed out also. I'm dreading any other side effects or what could make it worse.

Any tips and advice would be helpful xx
