Hi...I can only give you my Lexapro experience and I know not everyone responds the same way. I was on it for almost three years and last October decided to wean off, as I was not aware that I was not supposed to take NSAIDS with it as it can cause intenstinal/stomach bleeding...which it did. I have fibro and need to take Advil for pain. I weaned over a six week period which is way too fast. When I got down to 2.5mgs I just stopped. I still have occasional brain zaps and crying jags but the headaches, burning skin and the feeling of having the flu have passed. When I told my rheumy about these symptoms his reply was 'these drugs are a lifetime commitment. I suggest you go back on it, or another drug in the same class." Uh, no. Didn't care for the intestinal bleeding. Lexapro is one of the hardest SSRI's to wean from but not everyone will have the lingering symptoms that I do. I hope you are one of them, and maybe the Zoloft will help you...if it is Lexapro withdrawal that you are experiencing. If it is...it will get better.
