I am suffering from predominent obsession type ocd, I am on 30mg escitalopram and I showed 40% improvement, what is the highest safe dose of lexapro?
Most studies do not evaluate beyond 20mg daily. Dosing can be guided by drug level or pharmacogenomic testing since the enzymes that break down the drug can vary. This means 20mg a day for one person might give them the same level as 10mg a day for another person.

Lexapro (escitalopram) one day (10mg)didnt like it and havnt took it since. Noticed occasional hand twitches since then. Did one Lexapro (escitalopram) pill mess me up? Or just anxiety
"Just" anxiety?: You say that as if it's not a problem. It is. And it's a better suspect for the symptom too. Find a good CBT therapist to teach skills for handling your anxiety and the depression too. If they think Rx will help, they'll refer and you can try a different one - but the Tx may be the best help. Meds can mess you up - but not just one. Don't worry - it's true. ...Read more

I take Lexapro, Mirapex, Birth Control Pill, Vitamin D3 and B12 daily. Am I OK to take a daily probiotic without any negative interactions?
Okay but useless:
You may take a probiotic but do not expect it to make any difference other than the money you will lose.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
