Hi. I stopped Lexapro last week and started on Prozac generic (20mg). Starting yesterday, I've been experiencing nausea, severe irritability, and serious anxiety attacks. I've not had the "brain shivers" -- at least not yet. In fact, it got so bad, I had to take off from work yesterday and today. I'm taking 0.5 mg Ativan to help with the anxiety/irritability, and it has worked. I'm sleeping all day/night now to cope with this. Not sure how long symptoms will last.
I only took Lexapro for about 4 months, and experienced serious weight gain with it. Also, it didn't seem to help with my depression/OCD any better than Prozac generic.
How long will these withdrawal symptoms last? Have others experienced this? Thanks.
