... took it for about 5 months at 20 mg, before being weaned off. I went from 20mg. , 17.5 mg., 15 mg., 12.5, 10 mg. 5mg., then nothing. While doing this I did feel more anxious and depressed. If things got really bad I took a little lorazepam Now I am on St John s Wort. For sleeping, I take magnesium and valerian
Lexapro - I would just like to tell the group that I have been successfully weaned off this drug. I?

I just wanted to let the group know I did not have any weird symptons going off this drug.
I did get weaned off this drug with the assistance of my psychiatrist.
I am so relieved to be off this drug.
Marie K. That is great thanks for letting others know it can be done if it's done right and at the right time.Glad you had so much support from your doctor too. That is a big part and thanks for telling people how you went down in dose very slowly.Too many people think it is time and try and stop it in less than a week and wonder why they are having so much discomfort and withdrawal you can get off of any of these if it's done right. glad you're doing well. This well be a big reminder for many people that fear to take their medications due to the withdrawals and show it can be done if it's done right. Thanks a lot for sharing hope you continue to do well. Chuck1957
