Hey. I've never posted before, but here it goes. I have been on Lexapro for 10 years. I'm on 20 mg. Apparently it has pooped out on me and doc are going to try Zoloft, which I was on as a teen (I am now 33). We are doing a cross taper. I have MDD and panic disorder. I'm terrified of cross tapering, but know I can't wean and start another. I go nuts and I have to work full time and support a family. I need positive words about cross tapering because everything I read is scary as hell. Terrified of serotonin syndrome.

I've cross tapered, but not ADs (but I'm bipolar and have only been on two).  I've cross tapered all sorts of AAPs - like everyone I've ever been on - and this year I cross tapered Lithium and Pristiq, so there was a risk of serotonin syndrome, but I was fine.
