lexapro withdrawals

Hey all. I took lexapro for a couple of months for depression and I felt great, it definitely helped me a lot and gave me more energy. I read that some people experienced weight gain, but at first I actually lost weight due to increased energy. That quickly changed and I began gaining weight. I didnt think it was the lexapro until I gained 5 pounds over night!!! i didnt even think that was possible!! anyway, i decided to come off of it just because of that, and i weaned myself off of it rather quickly and now have stopped taking it completely. Im suffering some withdrawal symptoms... I get dizzy and it feels like my brain is buzzing. Im also nauseus and just feel like crap. I was wondering what herbal supplements can i take to help with the symptoms? I know 5htp, st johns wort and sam-e are some of the things people take for depression but has anyone taken any of these for withdrawals? or is there any other herb i can take to feel better? Thanks for any input!

Re: lexapro withdrawals

The only thing I have heard that helps with that is prozac. Some say it eases the transition and is easy to come off of. Good luck
