it seems you need to be put back on lexapro or a similar depression med. Your lexapro was keeping you emotions and that under control. Now that your off meds your mind will have you go back to where you were depression wise. I suggest you get back on something asap

Well It took me almost a year to get off of them and I really don't want to go back on them, plus I don't have med. ins. and I can't afford them.

I was taken off Lexapro and had similiar problems. My physician put me on Pristiq. What a change it has made for me. You should talk to your physician and let him know the problem you are having since going off the lexapro and see what his recommendations are. Either way, your physician needs to know what has happened since you stopped taking the Lexapro.
