Question about Lexapro and it’s side effects

So I’ve been on 10mg Lexapro for a little over a month, then my doctor put me on 20mg and I took it for two days then started taking 10mg again because the 20mg seemed a bit much it was making me dizzy and weird feeling well now that I’m taking the 10mg again I still feel lightheaded and still have a bad headache. Is this normal?

The advice on your thread yesterday gave advice about this, so that would be a good place to continue the discussion with any updates.

Well, I don't recall the earlier thread, but if a drug isn't working for you and is causing side effects that you can't handle it might not be the right med for you, assuming your situation is such that medication was an appropriate treatment to begin with.
