Hi...I would very strongly suggest that you wean yourself off slowly. I have been weaning off lexapro for two months after thinking I could just stop taking it. The side effects were horrendous, mainly the brain zaps. I am down to about 4 MG a day now and still have some disturbing withdrawal symptoms. At the very least, discuss this decision with your doctor...he may be able to give you something to take the edge off the withdrawal..in my case, valium (very low dose) has helped.
