Wrong Medication?

Patient: I am on day 3 of Lexapro and experienced 2 panic attacks, nausea, heart palpitations and feeling very strange. Do I stick with it or go to the doctor?

 

 

Doctor: Lexapro contains escitalopram, an anti-depressant drug. Symptoms like nausea, palpitations, etc need not be worried much , but since you had panic attacks twice, you are advised to visit your physician at the earliest, as you might require either discontinuation of the drug or addition of another drug.
