I was on 10 mg then took half for a week then a quarter for about 3 days.They say Lexapro shouldnt have bad withdrawl well they are so wrong.My head feels like its in anouther world this is the second time I have tryied to get off the last time I ended up going back on it I couldnt take th withdrawl.
Taking 10 days to go off of it completely is NOT what I would call going off slowly. Talk to your doctor about your reactions, but I don't think that most doctors appreciate how long it takes to go off medications like this without the bad side effects. Go back on the quarter of the pill or even half of the pill if you need to, then give it more days. Even try for an eighth of a pill.
