I have been taking Lexapro for about 6 years for panic attacks and inanity. I take 15mg. I take it every night because I was scared of the tiredness in work making me sleepy. I want to start planning to get pregnant. I'm so frightened of the withdrawals symptoms that come with coming off Lexapro and I'm scared I won't be able to cope with the panic attacks by myself. Even taking the 15mg I still have episodes were I'd have panic attacks while taking the 15mg. Some weeks I be fine flying around others very bad won't go anywhere by myself. I'm looking for a bit of advice about the drug. How people get on taking it and the best way to stop taking it without harsh side affects. I'm 29 years of age. Sometimes I wish I had of dealt with it all myself rather than taking medication for it. I was young and scared didn't no what was happening to me . How sad is it all I use to say was I just want to get up and go to work and be OK like a normal person.
