Hi Sue,

Have you spoken to your doctor since stopping the lexapro? It should only take a week or two for the withdrawal symptoms to subside I should think but It would be best for you to speak to your doctor about it.
Not every antidepressant makes you feel this way so your doctor could try you with another once and see how you get on with that.

Take care
