However, after being off for about 7 weeks, I had old feelings come back, the ones that made me take the meds in the first place, anxiety and such. I decided to start taking it again. I finally got over the withdrawl symptoms after about 3 weeks. Maybe a different med would be better for you.
I am diagnosed by him as having anxiety with secondary depression due to the anxiety!
Headaches is all so far.
Most people take anywhere from 10 mg to 20 mg of Lexapro. I have been experiencing withdrawal symptoms from taking 5-10 mg of.
I wonder if it is normal to have bad memory. I stopped lexapro 2 weeks ago and I need to study, but I feel like I cannot. Also, this weird sensation on my legs ( like tingling or numb). I took lexapro for 6 years and I feel like my brain does not work anymore.
For anxiety and panic attack syndrome have been on and off antidepressants since 1986. Began 10 mg Lexapro 3 years ago during severe bout of shingles. Doc increased dose to 20 mg this summer. Had to discontinue use of 20 mg Lexipro in mid October as side effects had gotten severe: memory issues, brain freeze or fog, tremors, sweats, heat intolerance, joint pain, neuropathy in feet.
If you find withdrawal symptoms from a 10% decrease to be too difficult, Although 5mg tablets are available, if you are taking 20mg Lexapro.
have been on and off Paxil, Prozac(had a horrible reaction), Lorazepam, Celexa, Lexapro, Risperdal ( which was supposed to "kick start" the Lexapro), and Wellbutrin.
Since water is part of the original formulation, it is unlikely additional water will cause the dilution to degrade. However, being exposed to light, etc. may do this, so it is unclear how long a diluted solution will last in potency. Do-it-yourself liquid People report that they can make their own liquid from Lexapro tablets and water.
I went from 10 mg. to 5 mg. with no problems, and then to 2.5 mg, which.. some pretty strong withdrawal symptoms after a week, if I were you.
4/14/14: discontinued Lexapro and began several weeks of confusion, panic, nausea, dizziness, joint pain, hoarseness, etc.
On and off SSRI and SNRI meds since 1996.
And you will become one of the many people we actually DO know, here, who have successfully gotten off meds after many years of use. Your course correction will allow you to continue to move forward and reach your goal without disaster.

with no problems, and then to 2.5 mg, which is where the antidepressant withdrawal syndrome started and settled in for a long stay.
I am thinking maybe going from my current 10mg to 5 mg for several I stopped without tapering and didn't notice ANY withdrawal symptoms.
