It doesn't seem like you have been on it a long time, but really you should ask your doctor about
this. 10 mg of lexapro is the usual starting dose. But I would still ask the doctor. It is much safer that way. There are other meds like celexa, effexor and pristiq. I think lexapro is an ssni instead of ssri, but not positive, but it is suppose to be a close cousin to effexor and I was on that for many years at the highest dose that you can take. The side effects, if that is what it were to be, should be wearing off soon.
So I can't say if it is safe or not, I honestly would speak with your doctor before stopping any med.
I truly hope that you feel better soon.
