The reuptake of the lingering serotonin around the synapses we are left with more serotonin okay so what did it do for me well let’s start with lexapro for social anxiety unfortunately i have to say i did not find lexapro to be really helpful for my social anxiety it was still helpful in that it did lower my worry and anxiety in general to some degree before going

To an event where i used to be anxious but then when i was in the midst of that event i was always almost as anxious as i was before i started taking the lexapro i was still there with my shaky hands fear of blushing and all those fun things so i will give the lexapro what two out of ten in this department but let’s keep going lexapro for generalized anxiety as i

Already alluded to about lexapro did indeed work pretty well for generalized sorry for me meaning it did dial down my worrisome thoughts i was less anxious at home and i had less anxiety about what might happen for example tomorrow at work or in the future in general so yeah for me lexapro did work pretty well for generalized anxiety i’ll give it a score of 7 out

Of 10 here lexapro for anxiety attacks back in the day i was also blessed with having horrible panic attacks yep i had it all anyway so does lexapro work for panic attacks well for me it did not not at all in fact i have to give it a score of 0 out of 10 here so for me lexapro produced anxiety in general but not my social anxiety i was still highly anxious when

Eating and drinking in front of people which has always been a big fear of mine for example and it did absolutely nothing for my panic attacks however i did find that it stabilized my mood a bit and i was having less deep dips and also it did increase my general self-esteem a bit so that was a couple of other good things right there but then it also made me gain
