I have been on Lexapro 20 mg for ten years or so. I have recently noticed that I become nervous and anxious in certain pressure situations. I went to have an interveiw for a federal position and got real nervuos and broke into a river of sweat. It was very emberassing and I did not feel good about how I came across to the interveiwer. I had felt this way a couple times before in normal conditions so I decided to check into why this was happening. I see that Lexapro makes the nervousness and rivers of sweat. I am going to start tapering off the drug slowly. I am starting with 17mg today and plan to go to 15mg tomorrow for two weeks and then reduce to10mg for two weeks and then to 5mg for two weeks to wean myself off. Does anyone have any suggestions that might be benificial to me?
