The best way is with the help of your doctor. Why do you want to stop it?

I have been on this medication for about 5 years and I feel I no longer need Lexapro at his time in my life. My life situation has greatly improved. My first husband had recently died after a 5 year batlle with cancer when I started taking Lexapro.

Ok i was just worried you'd need it after you stopped. Wouldn't it be nice if there was a pill to get over grief. But your doc should be involved with stopping it.

Hello jeamat. I suggest a very gradual taper in as such that Lexapro is one of the harsher drugs (withdrawal) to stop taking when the time arrives to do so. Regards pledge
