... and the only thing that can explain it is the Lexapro. I'm currently experiencing awful withdrawal form the lower dose, headaches, anxiety attacks, depression, irritability and just wanting to cry all the time. I originally went on the drug for anxiety as I had PTSD from losing my baby 4 years ago. I feel like I'm in an awful position now as I need to lose the weight I've gained but I don't feel well mentally. Has anyone any advice for been through something similar?
