I think you are putting additional pressure on yourself by searching for a timeline for "improvement" which is a natural thing to do but may be unhelpful with anxiety?
    Lol I must of asked myself the question when will I feel better a million times.
    Please excuse the pun but going backwards whilst on medication is a bitter pill to swallow.
    Wow I made a joke.

    Medication certainly doesn't help everyone and medication alone isn't the "answer" and "cure" for anxiety.

    If you feel significantly more anxious and depressed then I would contact your psychiatrist and ask for advice.

    Well I do feel worse but I really want to try to hang in there for at least 2 months to say I have it a go.

    That's a very sensible approach. It's helpful to have a plan and to stick with it without ruminating too much on physical symptoms which are annoying but harmless. Don't let them drag you down?

    I can still function, John and I find that the periods of agitation pass more quickly now that I'm on lexapro. The med has definitely helped with the depression symptoms. Anxiety-wise I prefer to rely on self-help.

    I like your approach. In those moments where the depression and brain fog have lifted I find I still have anxiety but it’s more like an annoyance. I can use my self-talk to allow the symptoms to pass without trying to fix anything.
    It is still early days for me. Headaches, brain fog still present but will continue on the 10mg. Only just finished week 5.

    Pretty low mood the last couple of days. Depression and anxiety hanging around most of the day. Have to go into work on Saturday and not looking forward to it.

    Hi people, another bad day.

    Went into work for a few hours but have had bad brain fog all day. Also physical anxiety symptoms like feeling my heartbeat hard but not fast.

    Really hoped to start getting some relief but not today.

    Can you describe what you mean by brain fog, John? You said you worked with power tools so it must be very hard to maintain concentration.
