to Byron: I actually got off of Lexapro at the end of March, and didn't go back to the Doctor like I was supposed to when I finished the pills because I felt better and didn't feel as if I needed to go back. Bad decision. I recently had another anxiety attack, but smaller, and it wouldn't go away, so I went back to the Doctor last Friday. He put me back on Lexapro, and the amount i'm taking is 10mg of it. I'm on day 3 today and it's helping me, but I feel so drowsy from it this time and I get small pains at times in my chest and lightheaded but my heart rate is a lot slower now that i'm on it, which is great. So Lexapro definitely does help. anything else you want to know, i'd be glad to reply.
