Exclamation Dizziness, Vertigo, & Lighthead after stopping Lexapro

I have recently tapered off of Lexapro about a week ago. I tapered for about 2 weeks. I now have dizziness, vertigo, and/or lightheadedness 1.5 weeks after stopping Lexapro. Is this a symptom of withdrawal? The symptops are light and accompanied by light headaches. It doesn't seem to be improving however.

When I was starting on Lexapro, I had the same symptoms until I adapted to it. I called my doctor and they said that my symptoms weren't associated with Lexapro; hmmm...perhaps I got a brain tumer.

Please give ideas and/or similar experiences.

Note: These SSRI medications are crap.

Yeah, it's probably due to going off the Lexapro. I had similar symptoms when I stopped taking Zoloft. You might want to taper even more gradually. I hope you feel better soon. Are you taking a different medicine now or stopping medications altogether for the time being?

I'm stopping the medication altogether. I'm going to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ to get me through.

Thanks.

Thanks right.... amen.... I believe the antidepressents are more harmful then good! Its the world's answer, not our almighty Fathers! God bless you!

For all of those suffering please donot be insulted by this. I am wonderfully happy if they work for you.
