Can Lexapro cause anxiety?
its the infection that brought the relapse not medicine
Hello and welcome to health care magic!
I read the query and can see that you felt after taking the antibiotic the anxiety came back again.
I would like to tell you that it is not the antibiotic that is at fault. Mostly it is the infection itself that brings the relapse. Any kind of viral infection or gastroenteritis is capable of giving a relapse. I have witnessed even people having a begening of anxiety or depresisve disorder after the infection.
There is nothing to worry so much about. Many times it resolves after few days or week or two. In the mean time I prefer to raise the dosage of the ongoing medicine or add an sos medicine to handle daytime anxiety.
So, its a tricky troublesome situation but you will be fine ..So no need to feel so low!
You can meet your doctor and discuss the above points.
I hope the reply helps you!
Please feel free to ask more questions for any clarification.
Wish you good health

Actually I did not have an infection I had a post nasal drip,.shame on me I heard zpak and lexapro do not mix well
You are very smart viral is cold that I had.thank i'llc patient
yes, the two medicines might not go well. may be check the drug next time
You are also right thay the two drugs donot go very well. You could have just gone through the interaction profile.
But its better that you took the medicine. Even without that there was gigh chance of relapse. ..and the full blown infection gives more problems and big relapses..I see that everyday in my clinical practice.
Cold is one of them!
If you get post nasal drip and flu frequently then you can go for flu vaccine. A new strain is there very year and one shot is good to prevent heavy infections all year through.
We reccomend it to old people, youngsters who are in public contact mostly and kids.
You can take it as it would help to prevent relapses and also save from unnecessary infection bouts.
Wish you good life.
