Is 30 mg of Lexapro a very large dose?

Lexapro

Lexapro
Lexapro is dosed as 10-20 mg. daily, and can be lowered to 5mg. in kids or elderly. Few exceptions exist if it is determined by your doctor that response is only partial after sufficient time and no side effects, where higher dose is tried, usually up to 30mg.

Dr. Randy S. Baker answered:

Can you take 30 mg of non drowsy sudafed with lexapro and probiotic?

Apparently

Sinus_infections
Sudafed preparations that are combined with cough suppressants, anti-inflammatories and anti-histamines can interact with Lexapro but plain Sudafed is not known to have an interaction. Probiotics don't have any interactions. Sudafed can worsen anxiety; consider natural alternatives like homeopathy (Hyland's Sinus or Boiron Sinusalia) & neti pots- see http://bit.ly/1g4BYwF for more information.

Instead of suppressing my appetite the 36 mg dose of concerta increases it. I have gained 30 lbs. is this normal? I take lexapro as well

Weight gain

Lexapro
There may be another reason for weight gain other than Concerta. Lexapro may contribute to it, but depression can do the same. I'd look for another reason for it.

I'm taking 30 mg of lexapro, 60 mg of buspar and 50 mg of doxepin a day. I'm still experiencing anxiety and insomnia. Is this normal?

Are you relying on

meds alone? If yes, then strongly recommend that you add in non-med therapies. Talking therapy ranks really high. Cognitive Behavioral therapy can be quite effective. Aim for daily exercise, 8 hours of sleep per night & good nutrition with 5 servings of veggies & 4 of fruit per day. Try tai chi, yoga, Qi Gong, progressive muscle relaxation, deep breathing exercises & meditation. Don't isolate.

If u have been on the medications foa a while and tolerating them well, unlikely. Let your prescriber be aware of your concerns.

I use to be on 30 mg of Lexapro, went down to 10 mg, but going back up again to 20 mg is harsher even when I slowly increase it by half dosages. What gives and what can I do to make it easier?

Depends

Back
That depends on what the side effects are. If you have gi upset- consider taking probiotics or take it with food. If you have insomnia - then take it in am. If you are experiencing medication related anxiety - then consider adding in deep breathing exercized. Please let your doctor know. Blood levels may be higher the second time around.

Currently on Lexapro 20 mg for five days (tapering off) and now increasing my Remeron to 30 mg from 15. I also take one 7.5 Vicodin for mouth pain each day. Am I at risk for Serotonin Syndrome?

Here is the

Serotonin_syndrome
interesting thing about sertotinergic syndrome- although it usually occurs with high doses of medications that increase serotonin level, there are some people who develop it at relatively low doses after a brief period of treatment.

My psychiatrist took me from 15 mg of lexapro to 10 mg of celexa. I'm having withdrawl symptoms, jaw clenching, sore neck, etc. I'm also experiencing some depression. How long can I expect these symptoms to last? I knew this would happen as it's like d

I don't know the full reason for this change. However, 15 mg of lexapro equals 30 mg of celexa. The physical effects can take a couple of weeks to clear; however, since you are feeling depressed, you should call your psychiatrist tomorrow. Lexapro is a derivative of celexa, but not everyone does equally well with a change. Also your dose is lowered, so please make contact soon.
