"I am still around. One 10mg pill of Lexapro and my life was turned upside down for over 2 years. Anyway, I am still experiencing some side effects but I have learned how to deal with them and the severity has diminished dramatically.
"I think it is great that you have been able to discontinue this med. You might want to consider a very low dose of a benzodiazepine, like valium for a couple weeks or when needed for the withdrawal symptoms. I would start with the lowes..."
Im glad I am not the only one I thought I was going crazy my Dr gave me this bc he said it is the one with the least side effects...ummm No! I have taken Prozac for many years and also have taken Welbutrin before and nothing like this had happened with them.
Took 1/4 of a lexipro yesterday afternoon. At 7 pm I almost called an ambulance .had that terrible warm sensation running through my body all night, plus had nausea and insomnia. How did you get through this ? Please help
