... difficult time trying to do this. Trouble sleeping at night, sweats really bad, uneasy feeling overall. I started at 20mg (7 years ago), and have weaned to 10mg, but now it's like I am back in the same situation I was when I went on the Lexapro. Any suggestions and how long does it take to wean off of this drug?
Without the Dr's approval and assistance this will drag on a very long time. Withdrawal and all its ugliness will plague you, and considering what this med is and how it works in your body supplements will do very little, they help, but no substitute for medically supervised gradual reduction, sometimes with short term aid of another med at a lw dose, again, the Dr needed there as well.
