Lexapro Withdrawal Symptoms?

I've been taking 5 mgs. of Lexapro for a little over a month. I've recently cut down to 2.5 mgs. (1/4 of a 10 mg. pill). Can anyone tell me which bad side effects to expect (if any) when I stop taking it?

I take Lexapro to control my "worrying", but I've gained 10 lbs. recently, and I really believe it's because of Lexapro. I want to stop taking it, but I'm scared of the side effects.
