I cut my lexapro down from 10mg to 5mg 10 days ago. So far I feel fine-no side effects. How long should I stay at 5mg before I cut back to 2.5?
I would drop to the 2.5 mgs once you have been at the 5 mgs for two weeks, so in a few days. Stay at the 2.5 mgs for a week to two then you should be ok to just stop. If you happen to have any withdrawl symptoms you can resume the previous dose and stay at that level a week longer before reducing again. One month is an appropriate amount of time to take to get off the Lexapro 10mg.
