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.
