I have been taking 10mg of lexapro(for depression) a day and 1 mg of lorazepam(for anxiety) twice a day for a year. I told my doctor I wanted off both because I hate taking medication. He told me I could stop the Lorazepam and only take it when I need it, so I tried that but couldn't even handle a day, not even cutting it in half. So last week I decided maybe I didn't need the Lexapro. I stopped cold turkey 4 days ago after reading some of the comments from people and knowing its not life threatening. So far everything has been great. I feel more energetic, my appetite has decreased but for the better(I gained 50 pounds in a year) and I want to do more. This morning I started to feel the dizziness. I haven't felt any other symptom but was wondering if more were to come? I hope I am one of the few people who doesn't feel dramatic changes but I doubt it. Did anyone else feel ok after a week but then get worse?
Maybe by taking my lorazepam its helping the withdrawal symptoms?
Also, Does anyone have anything to ease the dizziness? I am ok with it but it kinda creeps me out. I hate not being in control (I don't even drink alcohol because of that feeling)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
