Discussions that mention lexapro

Anxiety board

Does anyone have any advice? I was on Celexa for about 2 years. My insurance ran out and I was feeling better anyway so I started weaning myself off of it. As soon as my pills were gone, I went through horrible withdrawal. I was so nauseated all the time that I was miserable. It almost felt like what I would describe as tiny electrical shocks or impulses. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?? Well I dealt with it for a week and then I went to see a doctor who prescribed Lexapro because it was a similar med and it was cheaper. Now that I have insurance, paying for it is no problem, but I'd like to get off of the medication. I'm so scared, though, because i don't want to go through withdrawal again. Has anyone else experienced anything like this?
