I was on Lexapro for 8 1/2 months. Tapered from 10 to 5 mg for two weeks, then 5 to 2.5 for two weeks and now to 0 for several days. I am having some dizziness and brain zaps but nothing intolerable. Any advice on getting through this would be appreciated. Hoping to get back to normal soon. BTW the Lexapro was enormously helpful while I needed it to get through a very hard time caregiving for my husband and the stress involved. I don't need it now and don't want it which is why I have gone off it.
