I did get with my doctor as to tapering off but did not want me getting off of it due to how bad my anxiety levels were but they did tell me how to go about
it. I was told to start taking the Lexapro every other day for two weeks, then after that two weeks, start taking them two days apart for the next two weeks. I asked what after that, and the nurse replied, I guess just don't take anymore. It has been one week today since I have started trying to taper and I'm not noticing anything weird so far. So anyway, wish me luck with this. I'd like to try to function normally without it.
