... know how long the withdrawal side-effects last? I realize I've only been completely off the Lexapro 4 days now (am on 50 mg Elavil to replace it), but have been experiencing the withdrawal ever since reducing my dosage (from 30 mg, down by 5 mg for several days, started Elavil 50 mg when I hit 10 mg of Lexapro, then dropped Lexapro completely after 3 days). The withdrawal side effects aren't nearly as bad as the side-effects of Lexapro itself (no planned homicide, suicide, overwhelming depression, etc), but every bone in my body feels like it's been broken and re-set incorrectly, I have constant chills, a constant migraine, and non-stop nausea. Anybody have any idea when those withdrawal side-effects might be stopping?
