Spokojniejsza jestem trochę. Ale trochę lęku we mnie jeszcze siedzi. Czy długo czeka się na dobre samopoczucie po tym leku?

Looking for the influence of baseline anxiety on SSRI treatment effects, the authors showed that antidepressant efficacy of 20mg escitalopram was better than 40mg paroxetine for patients highly depressed with comorbid anxiety symptoms and that, contrary to paroxetine, escitalopram maintained sustained antidepressant activity in patients featuring increased baseline anxiety levels.
Patients with severe depression together with comorbid anxiety symptoms responded significantly better to treatment with escitalopram 20 mg compared with paroxetine 40 mg. Contrary to paroxetine, escitalopram maintained its efficacy with increasing baseline anxiety levels.
Escitalopram was efficacious in generalised anxiety disorder, 20 was not significantly superior to 10 mg/day. Escitalopram 10 mg was more efficacious than paroxetine.
These results support the use of escitalopram as a first-line treatment for GAD.
Escitalopram appears to be cost-effective compared with paroxetine in the treatment of GAD in the UK.
Escitalopram 20 mg was significantly more effective than paroxetine 20 mg on 5 of the 6 symptom [of anxiety] dimensions.
Further improvement in LSAS scores was seen at Week 24 (OC and LOCF), with significant superiority over placebo for all doses of escitalopram, and 20 mg escitalopram was significantly superior to 20 mg paroxetine.
Given that escitalopram 20 mg/day was associated with an earlier onset, higher response and remission rates, improved functioning, and better tolerability than the reference drug, escitalopram deserves to be considered as one of the first-line agents in the pharmacotherapy of OCD for longer-term treatment periods.
