I have been on this pill for about 8 years, (I know) I finally decided to come off because I think the pill has taken over my life. I initially started for depression/anxiety, but feel that I have overcome them, through the help of Lexapro, but now I am dependent on them and no longer want to take it. I've begun major vitamin supplements over the last year and a half, which I think have helped me immensely. But when do the brain zapps, shocking sensations and all the withdrawal symptoms stop? Should I try something like 5HTP, or St. John's wort to ease the withdrawal? Please any advice will be greatly appreciated...
