Having trouble with lexapro----I need help
Hey! I'm a seventeen year old female who was recently taking the antidepressant drug, lexapro. I went through a bad experience. It was horrible and my doctor recommended I take lexapro. I started taking it and it worked perfectly for about 5 months. I recently completely stopped it because for the past month I haven't been able to focus. I haven't wanted to talk to anyone and been extremely depressed.
I feel crazy, and been having bad dreams. i cant tell my friends, cause i dont want them to think <badly of me>. I guess what I'm asking is...will it hurt to just stop?
I have been off it for three days, because my dad didn't want me to take any more. Also, am I crazy? Is it the lexapro? Should I see a doctor? I miss getting good grades, and being happy. If you could help me understand, that would be great.
