Mr Kane Posted February 17, 2016 Share Posted February 17, 2016 Hi all. So I have been on lexapro 10mg for about 9 weeks. I feel about 60% better from day 1 but feel I may have peeked. I still have the occasional bad days but mornings always suck. I still wake up panicked and my anxiety is pretty high in the AM. This goes away by early afternoon which is significantly better than how I was before, when it would last 24-7. Any way my doc added Wellbutrin which I took for about a week and asked to stop taking. It made me incredibly angry and irritable among other things. I'm sure those are normal side effects but I don't see the need of going through another 8 week startup when lexapro seemed to work for me. My doc agreed and upped my dosage from 10mg to 20mg. Basically my question is; is the jump from 10mg to 20mg as bad as the original startup? When I first started the 10mg I experienced every negative side effect imaginable and it was not until week 8 I noticed improvement. Anyone make this jump and if so how was it? 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
