GrayEyes777 Posted September 19, 2010 Share Posted September 19, 2010 I posted a few days ago about doing a transition to a new AD soon (on Lexapro currently which is causing too much anxiety). Since I started the weaning, I came down from 20 to 15 mg, and I know it's only been 5 days but I'm feeling soooo much better. Then I got to thinking that when I see the pdoc next (mid-October), she will probably have me do the "transition" onto a new AD. And I know most likely I will be somewhat of a basketcase for who-knows-how-long. (Not being negative, just trying to be realistic - obviously, if it goes better than that, I'll be thrilled!). But Hubby's birthday is on Halloween, then there's Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. And the man is turning 50 on Halloween, so I really don't want to be a quivering mess. Is there a possibility I could stay at 15 mg of Lexapro maybe during the holidays and "hold off"? Or will the anxiety just build up again as I get used to the new level (albeit lowered) in my bloodstream? Honestly, this whole 2010 year has been such a f*ck-up for me so maybe I should just keep going along with the program as it's written....
