I have been on lexapro for almost 2 years now, I have decided to stop taking it as well as all other meds. I have gained a signifigant amount of weight since starting which I need to get off. Does anyone have the same problem & if so , once you stopped was the weight easy to get off? I am active & eat healthy but still continued to gain weight due to the medicine. Also, I have read about the side effects of stopping, I am on day 2 cold turkey, when do the side effects start & what else might they be? Please let me know if there is anyone out there with the same problem.
