| | I need to rant
Ok, i'm finally ready to come off of lexapro. But what they don't tell you is there are huge side effects of coming off the drug. Don't get me wrong, i think that lexapro really helped me keep going thru the darkest of days. But i feel better now, i have felt great for a couple of months. And all i want to do is step down 5mg a day for another six months. But when i try to come down no one in the medical field will admit that i am having withdrawal symptoms, (which I have really bad) They just tell me oh, maybe your having relapse go back up to your normal dose. I know what a yo-yo feels like now. I have strived thru therapy and taken medication, i am ready to move on but i'm stuck because there is nothing i feel i can do. I feel traped. I feel so frustrated. BTW the doctor recommended that i step down my meds.
