Please discuss this with y our doctor ... they will give you a tapering down plan and monitor you while yo come off Lexapro.

Hello gina marie. I agree, with marvel, take it up with your doctor, to devise a plan. Tapering is pretty much a must. I was on lexapro and tapered of from it when I stopped taking it. I did a very gradual, slow taper of 5 mg every two weeks. And it worked well, I barley noticed that I was cutting back. My dose was 30mg. Having said that, when you do sit down with your doctor, explain that you prefer to do it slowly. Unless theres a medical reason that you do need to stop it quicker of course. Very best to you,
