Lexapro Reviews

Show: for
After the first couple of doses I feel scared and angry at times. Paranoid and unsafe. Im taking 10mg which worked well in the past. I remember a weird phase in the first week or two but its still unnerving to go through it again. I find that if I accept the strange feelings I feel calm. Its only when I resist and try to get better right away that it freaks me out.
