Hi - I've been on Lexapro since Sept '05 and have found that it has worked for me. I do not feel as anxious as I have before going on Lexapro. I take 10 mg once a day. Because it has helped my anxiety I feel it has helped with my IBS as well (I'm a d also). But be advised that it could take several weeks before taking effect on your anxiety. It took 4 weeks for my depression to go away and another 2 weeks before I felt my anxiety lifting and another 2 weeks before I felt my anxiety was gone. My aunt recently went on Lexapro and she started feeling some relief after 2 weeks so everyone is different. I did have some slight side effects when I started taking it (metallic taste in mouth and hard time falling asleep - so I switched from taking it at night to taking it in the morning) but these side effects went away after a few weeks and now I have none. It may be worth a try. I would suggest reading up on it and getting some input from your doctor on it and then go with your "gut" (no pun intended) feeling. Good luck
