Help Fast! How Do I Stop Celexa And Start Lexapro?

OK, I take 20 mg a day of Celexa, but have been having sexual trouble on it. Doc wants me to switch to Lexapro. I tapered down from to the 20 to 10 mg a day 4 days ago and yesterday I dropped down to 5 mg of Celexa, I feel a little withdrawel, not too bad, just like somethings missing. She wanted me to *** 5mg os Lexapro to the .5mg of Celexa, but I would rather just stop one and start the other. Please give me some advice here. Can I just stop the celexa tomorrow and stry the lexapro?

I would call your local pharmacist and ask them just to be on the safe side.
