My psychiatrist cut my Lexapro down from 10mg to 5mg a day, per some observation my therapist had made about a twitch in the left side of my face. I think it's only a nervous twitch because I do get kind of giddy when I'm with him and just being in that room. I've heard nothing of a twitch that either my family or friends have seen and I've asked them multiple times if they've ever seen me do it.
Anyway since having my Lexapro dosage cut in half my withdrawal symptoms seem to get worse daily, if that is indeed what they are. I've been having bad indigestion and heartburn around the clock, palpitations (skipped beats) way more often than I normally was. It makes me want to smoke more just being stressed about it but smoking makes the palpitations worse it seems. It's really scary. I haven't felt like myself in a couple days either and at this moment that I'm sitting here typing this I'm having a terrible pain in my neck and across my shoulders, belching about every 5 minutes and some bouts of palpitations off and on. I'm feeling pretty high strung and giddy which I'm pretty sure is not making things any better.
I really could use some help on this, just to know that this is common would help comfort me some. I plan on calling my psychiatrist first thing in the morning as it is 9:00PM here almost.
