Re: Experiences on Lexapro - Pros and Cons
I gained 17 pounds while on Lexapro. I don't know how because I didn't notice whether I ate more or not, which I don't think I did. Anyways, when I decided to get off Lexapro, my doctor had me wean off. The whole process took me about a month. The withdrawals were gnarly. I would get these zaps up my arms and I was totally spacey. It seemed whenever I would walk, my whole body would zap. Totally unpleasant. However, I got off the Lexapro. When your ready, let your doctor know.
