Chest tightness due to lexapro withdrawl?
Hi all,
I have been on some form of antidepressants for over 10 years. For the past two years, I have been taking 10mg of lexapro, but have recently decided to get myself off once and for all.
I talked to my doctor, who proposed a month of 5 mg, followed by a month of 5mg every other day and then a revisit to see how things are going. I am just entered the 5 mg every other day phase, having made it through one month of 5 mg.
I feel great mentally. I am not feeling anxious or depressed and am sleeping well. However, I have been experiencing some tightness and discomfort in my chest and a bit of difficulty breathing. It's nothing severe, but it is annoying and, as a long distance runner, is hampering my training. Could this be a side effect of lexapro withdrawal?
Many thanks!!!
