Default Lexapro - 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.

Hey, hubble, and welcome to Psych Central! What does your doctor say? I'm not sure how long it can take for Lexapro to kick in.

Took me 6 weeks for full effect and I needed 30mg. Yes That is over max dose, psychiatrist approved.
