I started Lexapro 2.5mg for 4 days, and now have been on .5mg for 4 days. My anxiety is very very bad (worst) in the mornings, and it stays with me until around dinner time and then usually I can get some relief. So far I don't feel the Lexapro helping...how long will it take? I am pretty much doing this on my own because the doc who prescribed it to me isn't seeing me again until 4 weeks. Also, when would be the best time to take it...it makes me drowsy and out of it..but I'm scared to take it at night because I don't want it to mess up my sleep. Any advice?

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
