I've only been on Lexapro for 6 months, will the coming off effects be bad?

I've only been taking Lexapro for 6 months at 5 mg, and have decided I would rather come off of the drug completely. I'm very worried about the effects of coming off which others have experienced, but they've all been taking it for a while and at a higher dosage. Because I've only been taking it for half a year and at the starter dose, will I experience these side effects to the extreme they have? Also, will the effects be shorter or as long? If it helps, I'm 17 and female.

Thanks!
