How long will it take for me start feeling better once I start taking lexapro (escitalopram)?

2-3 weeks. We tell pts 2-3 weeks 4 it 2 start 2work & 6 weeks or so 2 get the full effect.
Depends. Usually it takes about 2 weeks for the full effect of medications like Lexapro (escitalopram) to reach maximum effect but some patients can get the effect sooner or even later. So don't stop the medication after a few days if you do not feel any effects.
