... breakdown... doctor insisted I go back on an antidepressant; Lexapro. I've been taking 5mg for 1 month and feel horrible... constant migraines and diarrhea. I want to stop taking it and go a natural route, do I still need to do a tapering off? I started taking one every other day then plant to take 1 and skip 2 days, take 1 and skip 3 days etc., until I'm off of it. Do I need to do this since I've only taken it 1 month?
