I have been on 10mg of Cipralex/Escitalopram for roughly 8 months. I was put on it for severe anxiety/depression and ocd. I feel a lot better now and can't really except some of the sexual side effects the cipralex causes. I was thinking about weaning my self off the cipralex. Going down 2.5mg every week. I was wondering if I did this if I would be able to completely avoid withdrawal symptoms? I was also wondering if the original anxiety symptoms I was suffering from before I was taking the cipralex will just return after I have weaned my self off it?
