I was prescribed to take Lexapro (escitalopram) 10mg years after years for anxiety.After being stable(few years), can I reduce to 5mg and keep on? or maintain 10mg?

In brief: Therapy?

In addition to Meds, have you yet tried any form of psychotherapy? Typically, the optimal combination of things to treat emotional issues such as anxiety or depression is medication (which, on your best day, is supposed to take the edge off symptoms) but the real gruntwork takes place in psychotherapist's consulting room.
