When I missed a dose of Lexapro I got brain zaps...even if I was a few hours late on taking the pill in the morning.  It has a very short half life and if you are not consistant with it, withdrawal symptoms begin.  That could be what's going on with you.

been on lex for almost a year now, 20mg, i have missed a few days but i don't think i have had any experiences like yours but the above explination seems right,
When the only tool you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

with your past and your future precisely divided, Am I at that moment?. . I haven't decided.

Why are you skipping doses? Or did you just forget? You may want to get a weekly pill box so you don't forget to take your meds.

I hope that you feel better.

Hugs, Karen...
