... realized that alot of the sideaffects I have are not from lamictal but from lexapro. I also realize that lexapro has had me thinking that other things are wrong but not... its lexapro.I've been on lexapro for 17 yrs. Has anyone been on that long and stopped? I need details because I'm scared but at same time want some drugs out of my system. Lamictal for the rest of my life but it doesn't have to be lexapro too. Help me someone.
