Withdrawal Success?

I have been on a 10mg/daily dose of Lexapro for about 3 years now and am wondering if there could be dangerous side effects for long term use.  I haven't experienced any negative effects since I started the drug, but I wonder if I could be at risk for future problems if I continue using it indefinitely.  I was originally prescribed the drug for anxiety symptoms, but have learned of several other health issues that could've been contributing to the anxiety symptoms.  These other health problems have been resolved so I would like to consider weening myself off the Lexapro, but am concerned about withdrawals.  Any advice would be appreciated.

The full prescribing information on Lexapro is available on the net from the PDR (Physician's desk reference) in PDF form. The information you seek is there.
