It does sound like withdrawal, and a mild one at that. Time should heal it. Try taking fish oil -- it's said to help.
is it normal to get that sharp head pain after being off the meds for 2 weeks. it didn't happen when i first went off it. thank you so much for your replies!
Could be a little bit of anxiety. I get temporal pains off and on when I'm going through a stressful time. I also get muscles spasms in my scalp/head area believe it or not. Went to the Dr. about it, he said it was just my anxiety. Nothing to worry about.
It could also just be a little withdrawal from the lexapro. But 5mg isnt that much. And you shouldnt have the pains too much longer. =)
I'm on 2.5mg of lexapro.
There is no normal, there is only you. But it sure sounds like pretty classic withdrawal.
