I've been taking lexapro for about 8 years for anxiety, panic attacks. My dr. refuses to take me off of it so I've decided I will do it myself. I tried once before but the withdrawal symptoms were so bad I started taking it again. Seems like my attacks got worse. I'm going to try and wean myself off again and hopefully I can stick with it, but I'm just wondering if anyone has successfully stopped taking it. Will I ever feel normal again?
