Help! I discontinued Lexapro about a month ago. My doctor told me to "taper" off. I reduced my dosage by 2.5mg. per week for one month. I was on 10mg. and had been for 8 months.
Since discontinuing the Lexapro, I have had horrible anxiety, agitation, head pulsing, electrical "shock-like" feelings in my head and a burning sensation within my body, particularly in my arms. I am also extremely impatient and irritable. This has been going on for a month and it is really scaring me. The burning sensation and the agitation seem to be getting worse instead of better. I did not have these symtoms before the Lexapro...I was being treated for depression.
Can anyone help me with this?
