I know there are already questions regarding this topic, but I wanted a more personal answer. I have been on 10 mg of lexapro for roughly 7 or 8 months, and was on a 5mg dose a few months prior (just wasnt working). Due to insurance issues, I have been unable to get a refill, and not knowing this would happen, was pretty much forced to quit cold turkey. I was fine for a few days - a little moody but nothing major - but yesterday it took a nose dive. I was having major dizzy spells, and my brain seemed to have some sort of delay, it seemed like my brain was lagging behind my vision, which caused me to become very disoriented several times per hour. I then started hearing voices, not too realistic, I could tell I was hallucinating, but it was still very unnerving. I cant seem to focus, everything is confusing me and I'm honestly a little scared. I couldn't fall asleep last night which has never been a problem, and I woke up almost a half hour earlier than my alarm, which is also very strange. I woke up insanely irritated, having a mental breakdown because I couldnt get an earring in, and after that I just couldn't stop crying. (silly, i know, and very unlike myself). I'm also very, very shaky. How long is this going to last, and is it likely to get worse? I have school Monday through Friday and being a high school student I cant really skip classes. Thanks for any help in advance.
