Apparently Fluvoxmine isn't right for me so the doctor is switching me to escitalopram. Has anyone had success starting off with escitalopram? I've read all the horror stories that occurred when switching from Lexapro to generic escitalopram (same thing happened to me when going from Effexor to generic... ). Thanks for the help!
I have ever only been on escitalipram. 4yrs on 20mg. I just recently cut down for a week to 10mg and am now have been off 4 2 weeks.
It saved me from a horrible stage in my life filled with anxiety and panic attacks. It did its job and I'm so thankful for it. I'm also thankful that the withdrawals are manageable. Heartburn and the zaps lightheadness etc but my energy levels are fantastic!!
Hope this helps a bit :)
