It is best to taper off this medication slowly over time so to avoid these withdrawal symptoms.
I am currently prescribed Lexapro 10mg and tried to quit cold turkey because my insurance wont cover the script and it's 120 dollars a month. after about two days i suffered from insomnia, vomiting, nausea, very bad mood swings and irritability as well as night sweats and the depression. So I had to break down and just start taking it again and wait 2 weeks for it to get back regular in my system and it was a hard 2 weeks. It would probably be safe to start back on the medication. It's all prescribed for a reason. Hope you feel better!
