I have taken Lexapro 10 mg for about 20 days. No results so far. What if I just want to stop taking Lexapro. how long should it take to step-down? should I take 5 mg for a certain number of days. If I stop taking Lexapro, will I be back to where I was before I started taking it? Thank you.

It's best to discuss with your doctor what doses to take while you ween off Lexapro. Your doctor will need to monitor you while you come off the medicine and will perhaps put you on something else.
