... This was a drug to help me quit smoking but it caused a terrible chemical imbalance that made me think about suicide. Lexapro was a miracle for me. The only major side effects was the excessive weight gain. After two years, I decided it was time for me to come off the Lexapro. After 3 days of not taking it, I seem to be ok. Has anyone else out there quit Lexapro? If so, did you have any side effects from it?
I am currently getting off of lexapro for many reasons including the 50 pounds i gained in the 2 years of taking it. I am on a slow taper right now to avoid any side effects... I have a blog that has had my day by day of getting off the medication, you can look and follow it if you like, i also am starting a support group on facebook that you are free to join. I want to reinforce the positives through your journey because you can make it through this time...
& the facebook support group, just search for tapering off lexapro in the search bar and it will come up... join and become a member
