Lexapro is a great drug for depression and anxiety. It is actually the only non-narcotic anxiety medication that I support. So I would give it a shot if I were you. Ultimately, I would really suggest that you go to see a counselor. There is something bothering you. Some of this anxiety and depression can be fixed by talking. I dont know if you have ever had a session with a psychologist, but I highly recommend it. I was very hesitant the first time I went, but let me tell you it was great. Being able to talk to somebody who is completely unbiased and only knows and hears what you tell them is incredibly liberating. Please consider it.

i have been on it for almost 2 weeks and it hasn't made me any worse , I can't say that i have completly recovered. I also have bad anxiety and all the symptoms u listed but it does seem to help. I haven't has a bad attack since i started taking it, the first week it makes u feel tired and slugish.. but it does get better, I am going to give it the 4-6 weeks it takes to see how it works, I was on paxil for 4 days and it made me worse then what i was. So i was scared to try anything else, for a month i stared at the prescription bottle and debated, the first night i took it i woke up feeling like **** but it seems to get better everyday, the first day i didn't crawl out of bed till 3 now i can get up at about 8:30 and not feel to bad..please give it a chance, i wish i would have sooner....
god bless u
