I Have been on 20 mg/daily for 13 years and now I am weaning off. did 15 mgs for 10 days and now went down to 10 mgs,,, been 1 week, I am having stomach issues, dizziness, feel like I have flu but I don't, more anxiety...
I wish I had one to give you. I'm waiting to hear the same. 1 week completely off after 3 years. Every part of my body is being effected and the most troublesome are the brain zaps and body ache/fatigue. following this to see if anyone has good news of successfully getting off this drug.
I had to wean off Lexapro in my 40's when I began having manic Bipolar episodes. I used a decreasing dosage schedule that my doctor provided over three weeks... no problems or symptoms at all!
Hope it goes smoothly for you! All you hear are the bad comments, but people who have had a successful taper generally don't visit forums to relay their experiences. They're too busy with their lives.
Best regards, Wildcat
