Hi rtq, welcome to healing well we are happy to have you. Let me apoligize in advance for misspellings as I am not used to typing on my notebook (laptop), my PC is in the shop for an upgrade so my words may be off if I dont catch em in time.
I havent been on Lexapro but I was wondering why you were coming off of the medication? Anyhow, some of what you may of been feeling could of been withdrawl side effects which is common with weaning off of antid's. Carly did give you some good advice though and if you feel comfortable staying on the medication then that is always up to you. However, you need to discuss this with your physician and also if you do decide to stop it you should report any problems to your doc.
i am sure that some Lexapro users will post to let you know of their experiances. Please do feel free to post often, this is a good support network.
