Lexapro Withdrawl Symptoms
Has anyone had severe Lexapro withdrawl symptoms from stopping too quickly? If so, what were they and how long did they take to resolve?

I took Lexapro for about 3 years.  It suddenly stopped working and I got into a really deep depression.  I stopped taking it immediately and was put on Effexor.  I did not have any withdrawl symptoms from the Lexapro whatsoever.  Hope its the same for you.

I had been on Cipralex (Lepraxo for you) for about 4 months. I stopped taking them because of an allergic reaction. The withdrawal symptoms were only comparable to an earthly hell. I taking Epival and Wellbutrin. Lot better results. Cipralex helped until levels of toxicity in my body were too high.
I hope this helps.

I have recently gone form 20 to 15 of Lexapro. Even with that small decrease I am feeling fatigued, dizzy, very uncomfortable at times, and just out of it.

They say everyone is different. Some can feel nothing. No side effects at all. Some feel every one in the book (Like Me)

And I guess when i go from 15 to 10 in a few weeks it will even be worse.
