I have been on 5mg of Lexapro daily since October (almost 4 months) and after doing talk therapy and attacking my anxiety head on and with other means (aside from the medication) my doctor said I am ready to come off. She said I shouldn't feel much since I was on it for a short period of time and at such a low dose, but I'm a bit skeptical. My anxiety was really bad when I went on it and I experienced brutal side effects for about the first two-three weeks of taking it before feeling better. I have now been off the 5mg for four days and I am feeling fine. When and what side effects should I expect? I just want to prepare myself to deal with them. What have others experienced? I would rather not be on the medication as I am young and married and hoping to have children some day soon. I seem to be coping well with my talk therapy and strategies I have learned. Would love some input. Thanks!
