Ok, So hopefully someone can help me out with this. I have been on Lex. for about 3 yrs. I was up to 60mg at one point, got a new doctor, brought me down to 20 and I was doing fine. Here is where im running into problems. I wanted to get off the pill completely, so I started to wean off. I went from 20mg to 5mg, staying at each dosage for roughly 2 weeks. 4 days ago I stopped completely, and needless today I almost had a complete meltdown today. I was showing withdrawal symptoms after day 2, but by day 4 they became unbearable. Was that too quick?. I know my doc. is gonna give me his opinion, however I was hoping with all the experience on this site to get some more input.
