I finally got my anxiety under control enough to start taking Escitalopram (bit of a paradox I know), I was doing better, able to manage work and some small trips out with the kids for an hour or so. I wanted to start taking it to keep improving, primarily because I wanted to start doing more with the kids, take them for days out and stuff, been feeling pretty bad that I haven;t been able to do much with them and going out causes symptoms to increase, I want to go on holiday with them this summer.

I've just started on 5mg, not a lot I know. Been on for a couple of weeks now, side effects have been minimal bit tired, slight headache but already feels like the DR is worse again and I'm scared of getting back to how things were.

Not sure whether to give it up or keep going, any advice would be appreciated?

I tried lexapro. It did well for me. It definitely brought me back to a clamer state, but fearing the long-term effects of a chemcial drug, I decided to let it go after two months.

BUT, this may not be the case with you. PErsonally, I prefer natural, holistic approaches. To each his own, for many, prescriptiosn are life-saver and if you need it, you need it.

It could be a side-effect. Ive heard of some meds making DR worse but not permanently. Withdrawal can sucks, and they suck more when you are DP'ed
