Hello I recently made an idiotic decision to abruptly stop taking lexapro after six months of taking it then tried 20mg of fluoxetine for 7 days I am feeling horrible withdrawal effects and just want to go back onto the Lexapro. I am just worried if I do am I risking serotonin syndrome my doctor told me its fluoxetine or nothing but I cannot take the fluoxetine im terrified of it and I am terrified of how I am feeling now.
Take a deep breath and calm down. SS is a bit overrated in my opinion. Im on 4 SSRI medications and have been for years. If your only going to be taking Lexapro and not Prozac, I would say go ahead.
I'm a inactive RN, so I must follow this up with; this is my suggestion/opinion only and should not be used to replace medical advice. Please call or see your Dr ASAP. If you think you are having an emergency, please call 911!
