I have been taking Lexapro 10 mg for approx. 25 days. As far as I know, I have received no benefit from this medication. Of course, I will ask the doctor, but would like to hear what you think. If I've only taken Lexapro for 25 days, how should I get off of it. Should I take 5 mg for 5 days, then 5 mg every other day? What should I do. Thank you for your help.
If you are going to get your doctor's advise then that is the only guidance you need. Yes, you may need to taper off but the decrease in dose depends on what your doctor decides ... looking at your circumstances. We don't have all the medical information about you to give you advise like that.
