Thanks so much ! Today was better as I was busy at work and didn't think about symptoms so much ! I have tingly hands, feel a bit wired and anxious. I am actually adding more Lexapro tomorrow. My sister is a Clinical Psych and told me it takes her patients about two weeks to a month to adjust especially when on one AD for so long !

@sped1 – Good to have busyness sometimes to take our minds off things, right? During the bumpy tapering off and going onto another antidepressant I mentioned, a pharmacist told me it could take up to 3-4 months to fully acclimate to the new medication, bupropion (Wellbutrin). I did then hang in there, cause it continued to be bumpy, and eventually that medication turned out to be really good for controlling my depression.

Are your wired and anxious feelings tolerable till tomorrow?
