Woo Hoo! Off Lexapro!


Recommended Posts

Well, after years of being on Lexapro, I'm finally off it! I did the final tapering last week..been off it for 8 days now. I've had almost no side effects, although I've also been increasing Lamictal, so that may have something to do with it. After reading all the SEs of coming off Lexapro, and knowing that I had been on 20mg for 4-5 years, I was really worried. Thank God it went well! I'm sure that the really slow rate of tapering my pdoc used also helped a lot. Now we just need to get the Lamictal dosage dialed in.

Congrats on coming off it successfully. I'm in the process of coming down off of Citalopram, so we'll see how that goes.

congrats!

exciting to be able to make changes, huh? it's always worth celebrating when they go smoothly-- goodluck with the lamical, it takes patience to get the dosage up there, but for some of us, manohman is it worth it. keep us posted ;)
