I am 7 days today off of lexapro. Today not so bad, but this past week has been a nightmare! I was on 20 mgs for past 4 years and 10mgs 4 years prior. Flu symptoms,insomnia, extreme dizziness, tingeling in front of forehead, feeling insane etc. I did taper off but on my own. I lost my insurance and could no longer afford meds,. and have been wanting to get off them for some time. Has anyone been on an anti -depressant for this long and tapered off? How long was the withdrawl process? Will I ever get my head back entirely? thanks for any feedback in advance.
