I started taking Lexapro 20mg earlier this year, after awhile however I became sick of it and around July stopped it straight off. No tapering. Just off instantly, yes i know it was a really stupid idea (though i probably wasn't thinking straight when i stopped in the first place... ) and it wasn't without consuquences. Its been about 3-4 months since I have taken any anti-depressant, and i have started taking a note of somethings. My short term memory feels as if its deteriorated, my mind has had moments of... flat zoning out, and I think there might be some anxiety problems as of late. I want to know how long could these problems last at the longest? Know, that I realize it was stupid of me to go against doctor's orders, I just don't like taking medicine that makes me feel... not me.
