Hello everyone I am normally hanging out in the C.P Forum. However I was hoping that if I posted this to the Anxiety/Depression rooms I might get some good advise.
My wife is 35 years old and after I got ill she started to suffer from depression. She has been taking 40 mg of lexapro per day for the last year or two. She has been extremely tired for the last few months and no will to do anything. She has decided that the Lexapro is not doing any good so she stopped cold turkey about two weeks ago. She seems to be suffering from withdrawal. Nausea and lack of energy is bad as long as a strange feeling in her head. Is this something that should go away quick? Is there anything she should do that might help her get through this? Would it be a good idea to start taking them again but at a lower dose and then wean off or since it has been two weeks just fight it out? Any help would be appreciated.
