So I have been on Lexapro for a very long time and found it was not working so I stopped. My side effects are blurry eye sight, soar eyes, can't wear my glasses, headaches and it reminds me of the start of a migraine. No brain zaps thank god. I am trying a more natural way to help with low serotonin levels, 5-HTP. Maybe that's why no brain zaps. I just need to know how long the symptoms last. It's been about 5 days and I can't keep this up. No depression but more emotional.
