Do I need to wean myself off, even though it's only been 9 days? & if so, any suggestions on weaning dose? Thx In advance for any advice :)
You have not given it a chance at all. It takes 4-6 weeks for it to reach peek effect. I would cut them and take half for a week, then take a quarter for a week, and it should work. Always when you stop a med like that, if you symptoms you should go back to the previous dose. You're going too fast. After 9 days it should be pretty easy to do. You really need to tell your dr.

My doc just raised my lexapro from 10 to 15 mgs as I had no relief from major depression or anxiety?
