I have been on Lexapro for 5 years and I want to get off of it. How do I titrate donw and finally stop taking it.
Hello smccauls. You'll need to do a gradual taper. I'd go the route of 2.5mg per every two weeks. If you find that you're doing well, feeling strong, you could increase it to 2.5 mg per week. If then you happen to find you're not doing as well as you previously were doing, you could go back to the previous dose. Regards, pledge
