..Hello Everyone, I have been on Lexapro for almost 10 years. I was prescribed it when I was 21 for constant panic attacks and moderate depression. I have been feeling good the past few years, but my doctor said if it works, then don't stop taking it. My problem now is that I haven't seen my doc in over a year and I need a refill and she won't see me without an appointment. I am a full-time college student and recently unemployed so my funds are tight and I just cannot afford a doctor visit until I get back on my feet. I've been debating quitting cold- turkey because that seems like my only option. I'm scared of the side effects, but if I can get through the first week I think I will be ok. Has anyone else been on Lexapro this long and had success detoxing? Please help. I would love any advice. I won't be able to go to the doc tomorrow and it will be day 2 without my pills.
Thank you so much!
