Did you taper off Lexapro or generic escitalopram and stay off the medication? Do you still feel good and your depression or other symptoms did not return? How much time successfully off the med?

So far, I'm not sure whether I'll need to take Lexapro or other anti-depressant for my whole life, or whether I'll be able to taper off and stay off but still feel happy and healthy with no depression.

I tapered off once, but had to go back on again. Right now, I'm tapering off again.

I'm willing to take an anti-depressant forever if that's what my body needs. But if I can be happy and healthy without it, I'd rather be without it.

Hoping that you can share your success story with me, thanks!
