Lexapro is escitalopram, right? If so I'm on another brand of it too. How long have you been back on it? it can take a while to really start working again.

Tell your Dr that it's not working. I had been taking meds for 7yr on off of different kinds. Then my Dr had me try a new one after this pregnancy and now I finally know what it is supposed to feel like when they work. Your body can change after a baby so maybe it's time try something else.

I was taking citalopram (celexa) for months.. at least 6 months, and at the max dose, it started not working as well, so we switched to escitalopram (lexapro), and I took for about a month, and it was working perfectly at 10mg, which is small. I ended up having an unintended pregnancy, and i got off my meds because I was planning on keeping the pregnancy, but I changed my mind and got a termination.. Right after that, I started the lexapro again.. Maybe given the situation, my anxiety is normal. =-/ idk.
