I am a 19 year old male. I have suffered panic attacks for 2 years and just a few days ago (Wednesday, Feb. 5 '14) I was put on 10mg Escitalopram. Generic for lexapro. The first day I took it... I had a huge wave of happy emotions. 30 minutes later, I was crying and feeling sad. Then, my body started feeling really cold and really hot at the same Time. About an hour into taking it... I had a horrible panic attack. My hands were tingling and my feet were sweating. I slept naked and with no covers. The next morning I took it again and I got another panic attack. I was really moody and lost my appetite. Which is rare for me since I usually give 6 full meals a day. I have really bad nausea, an annoying headache, I would get dizzy every few hours and I feel like it was triggering some type of anxiety where I couldn't be away from my fiancé. My face (mostly the left side) would go numb and cold for a while so I finally called The doctor. She told me to stop taking the medication.
Now here is the question. I took it for two days only. Are those symptoms common? Or bad? And also.. How long will the medication be in my body? Today is Feb. 8, '14. And will being on it for two days and stopping right away give
Me any withdrawals? I found that epsom salt baths helped me more with anxiety than the medication.
