I have recently increased my dose of escitalopram on Sept 30 to 7.5 from 5mg and working towards 10 mg as per doctor's orders. For the past several days I have gotten so nauseous and queasy about 4-5 hours after taking this dose in the morning. I also take a .5 xanax too. However, I feel jittery and nauseous this afternoon....like a panic attack but I don't know if it is increase in the escitalopram or still anxiety. I have been on 5mg. For several weeks and think it has helped a bit with depression but the anxiety and nervousness linger. Anyone else have this type of experience upon increasing the dosage. I am really frustrated. I had a great weekend then suddenly these symptoms have in invaded my life again. Thanks.
