Hi all,I'm having a bad time at the moment and need to vent. My IBS-D has caused me to develop anxiety/depression over the last few years. It was under control with Effexor but that stopped working. Now my doc has put me on Lexapro. I did 3 weeks on 10mg per day and haven't seen any benefit. So now I'm going up to 20 mg. The last 3 days I've been on 15 mg and tomorrow is the first day on 20 mg.I have to say I'm feeling worse than ever. Anxiety and depression is severe and the Lexapro is causing me terrible nausea all day. I'm hoping that the Lexapro will start working at 20 mg but it's hard to be positive about anything at the moment.Has anyone else had no luck with Lexapro at 10 mg but good benefit increasing to 20 mg?I feel like I'm going to go crazy if I don't get a break from this anxiety/depression soon.John.
