Hi all! I have a couple questions. Has anyone gone off of Lexapro and what are the withdrawal symptoms like and for how long? My doc is taking me off it next month. It's my quest to get off as many meds as I can that I don't need. I just got off Lopressor a week ago... Hopefully the baclofen soon too! Also, after your initital flare of MS, when was your second flare? Or how often do they come? I am just curious since I want to make sure the ADEM diagnosis is accurate, I would be interested in knowing when a second episode of MS hits, if it's going to. I know, it's different for everyone and unpredictable, but please humor me and let me know a few personal stories for reference. I just have this neuro appt on Monday so it's got me thinking a little... Thanks all!!
