About Lexapro
Your doctor may start you on a lower dose of Lexapro and gradually increase the amount of Lexapro you take over time. You may need to take Lexapro for at least a week, and possibly up to a month before you start to see an improvement in your condition. Do not stop talking Lexapro unless your doctor tells you to.

Your doctor will want to monitor you closely when you first start taking Lexapro to see how you're responding to Lexapro, to adjust your dosage if needed, and to ask you about side effects.
