Hi Mrs. Fitz,
Although I have not been on Pexeva...I did just wean off of Lexapro and had many similar symptoms for about
1 week afterwards. Nausea, vertigo, brain shivers, headaches.
I often get muscle twitching in my eye, but I'm not sure that it was related? It doesn't bother me too much - although annoying, it seems pretty common to have those eye muscle twitches (i've polled some family members - they all get them and don't have any anxiety issues!)
If you remember your withdrawal symptoms being bad the first time, then at least you know that they will go away (assuming they did the first time!). Also make sure that you are tapering down slowly.
I also bumped up my vitamin intake - took omega 3s & b complex 3x per day, instead of the usual 1x per day. Tried to eat healthy, get rest, stay calm and fight my way through it. It wasn't fun - I was thankful for the support on this board! But after about
8 days, I felt back to normal and just fine.
