Tapering off Lexapro or Cipralex (Escitalopram)
1. Where can I access reliable information for Lexapro tapering off? The leaflet contains no information about that. People use this community to ask for help about this matter, but I feel great hesitation to accept advice from anyone, even my physician. Why?
In the past, I had stopped taking Cipralex 10 mg suddenly and without consulting my physician and a relapse occured. Last week, my physician asked me to take a 10 mg dose rather than a 20 mg dose. I am a little hesitant. Should I do it?! I am looking for some reliable source for tapering off. Should I reduce the dose immediately from 20 mg to 10 mg or take it like 20,10,20..mg per day? I really need your help
