      I was on lexapro when I was still a teenager and didn’t have problems. I’m 25 now and have been on it for a month and am also having worsened anxiety and sense of panic. :/

      Ooh it really depends - my mom's been on it for years and it's helped tons, you could still be in the black box. HOWEVER, for me lexapro completely destroyed all my emotions and I was a blank slate with more anxiety so uhhhh personally didn't vibe

      All I can say is please let your healthcare provider know how you’re feeling :) they will take it from there!!

      This is pretty specific to my situation, so I’m not sure if it will help. That being said, my anxiety got worse on Lexapro because I actually had ADHD. I’m properly medicated for that now and my anxiety has improved tremendously
