I did the ultimate no no and stoppped taking lexapro cold turkey. I would forget to take my meds and woke up one morning thinking it had been a week since I had last taken this med. I am not on week 3 without this medication and feel horrible. Although my anxiety has not come back, thank GOD, i have had severe dizzy spells, periods of memory loss, stomach bloating, increased drowsiness, headaches, and other minor issues. I am wondering how long these symptoms last. I do not want to start back on this medication but am starting to get worried at how long it is taking to get over the "withdrawl" symptoms my body is going through. Anyone have any suggestions, ideas, or similar experiences?
