I have been having severe anxiety for about 12 hours and ikeep puking. Also, i'm in the process of increasing the dosage of lexapro (escitalopram). Is there any correlation between the two?

Yes, could be: Lexapro (escitalopram) has GI side effects including nausea -- can be vomiting also. Please contact your doctor about this. If you're not also drinking alcohol or adding other medicines at same time, your symptoms could certainly relate to lexapro (escitalopram). You may need to hold at your current dose, or go up more slowly -- your doctor can help you discern. Good luck.
