Hi, I have been taking 20mg of Lexapro for almost 6 yrs now and have decided that i want to stop. i started taking it to deal with scary thoughts i was having on a regular basis... someone kidnapping my kids, someone dying, etc.. so it has been 6 days since my last pill and this past weekend was horrible! I was nauseous, dizzy, very irratible , etc. But today, i have coped pretty well... i have a dr appt on friday and i am hoping i am still doin ok then, if not i only want him to give me something very mild.
anyhow, has anyone went off cold turkey and felt better? in just a couple days, i think i have more energy which i haven't had in a long time!
