    Hey Laura


    Lexapro can help with both depression and anxiety by elevating levels of the chemical, serotonin, in your body. 


    I am going to give you the link to some very detailed information about Lexapro found right here on Health Central.


    I am also going to give you this link to the official Lexapro site with FAQ's to read.


    Hope this helps some.  Perhaps someone who is currently taking Lexapro can chime in and talk about their experience using this drug for anxiety.


    Thank you for your question.

    Hi Laura  

      I have been taking Lexapro.. but admit it was a long time to feel anything positive..and it is not much ..


    I am still battling it... but try to give it a  chance.  It is not enough for me.

    to smile about.... YET.  Let me know how you are doing with it... and anything else.   I am waiting to be"rescued" soon.      "Do yourstuff... Lexapro"

           ~~ hoping you feel improvement~~
