Good day to you all. I am usually on the anxiety forum but decided to post here since I am experiencing extreme skin itch since I started tapering from LEXAPRO almost a month ago. It is a bloody pain and to think I still have some ways to go before completely being of LEXAPRO. Would any of you know how to alleviate this itch? I have seen a Derma was prescribed some meds and cream bit they are hardly working. This is so frustrating. Would appreciate any help/tips.

Hydrocortizone cream and benadryl is what I take for my itching.
