Upped to 20mg no effect after 3 weeks

Maybe its too early, but other than additional drowsiness during the day I've notice nothing good (or bad) about Lexapro. Still have exaggerated startle response, still drowsy during the day all day, still palps, still hyperventilation, still cold chills/hot flashes.

I would have expected to see *something* (even tiny) by now.

Re: Upped to 20mg no effect after 3 weeks

It'll be 5 weeks for me on Wednesday at 10 mg (and 1 1/2 months before that on smaller doses), and I'm still not sure if it's doing anything for me. I'll have a really good day, then a bad day, etc.....and this repeats itself, over and over.

How long were you on a lower dose before moving up to 20 mg? I feel like it's probably time for me to move up a dose soon.
