I went to the doctor with a mild case of anxiety and at first he gave me xanax(.25mg) which pretty much did the trick. Once I finished the prescription I was fine for a little bit until the panic returned. I went back and he decided to prescribe me Lexapro(10mg). I took a pill and a half and this has to be the worst product on earth. I’ve already experienced every side effect from supper depression to muscle twitches to sexual problems, diarrhea to headaches the list goes on. I decided to go cold turkey after 2 days on it. my question is how long will these symptoms last? cause I’ve been off it for 2 days now and I feel worse then ever, like im a depressed zombie.(ps. I’ve never been depressed in my life until I took this pill) please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And one more note, I took 1 pill on Tuesday (Nov 28), and a half a pill on Wednesday(Nov 29). Today is Saturday and I still feel like a zombie(like im not myself) im still experiencing body twitches, insomnia, loss of appetite and sexual dysfunction. What’s going on??????all this from only 2 pills?
great idea!!! lol I called about 30 pharmacies from New York to California. And received many different answers. The 2 main responses were "these side effects shouldn’t be present from such a low dose" and the other was "give it about a full week to completely clear out".. I don’t know which to believe, but ill go with the most positive out of the two, so ill chill out for a few more days

u are so right I never thought of that. I was off the xanax for about a week (cold turkey)then I had a really bad panic attack (it felt like my heart was going to stop). Let me think I was only taking the xanax(.25mg) when I had minor and small panic attacks. It worked like a charm. Two days after I was done I went back to the doctor complaining about chest pains and he prescribed me lexapro. It could very well be xanax withdrawal.
and once again thank you all for your replies, suggestions and concerns!!!!
