Re: Lexapro withdrawal question
One week is not long enough to taper off. You are most likely suffering from withdrawal effects. For some reason, doctors don't understand, don't get it, or just don't care about the effects of coming off a medication -- especially an AD.
The slower the better. Take the 10 mg until you feel better/stabilized, then go down again. Stay there until you feel better/stabilized, etc... do this until you can comfortably stop taking it.
Everybody is different. It took me 10 months to get off of Effexor.
Don't get discouraged. Just listen to your body and be kind to yourself while you go through this.
