Hi tara...you have to wean of all SSRI's very slowly. I have been trying to get off Lexapro for several months and always end up taking a piece of a pill to stop the withdrawal effects...mainly this ''wooshing' sensation that I get in my head when I move my head or eyes. I understand these sensations can last for quite awhile even after slow withdrawal. How long...don't know but I wish the doc had warned me before I started this drug!
Guess we both have to ride it out but maybe you should talk to your doc and ask if you should wean more slowly.
