Jan 14, 2018 · Lexapro withdrawal in Depression & Anxiety

Hello, my physician who prescribed the Lexapro originally is the one who instructed me in how to ween off. I followed her instructions, which did not work, and am not on other meds. Several pharmacists have suggested weening off by smaller increments over a longer period of time and that is what I will do now. I just needed to have the oral suspension Lexapro to be able to reduce each daily dose by 1-2mgs. Thanks!

Jan 14, 2018 · Lexapro withdrawal in Depression & Anxiety

I would like to ask if anyone has attempted to ween off Lexapro using the oral suspension? I am going do this starting tomorrow. I have been taking lexapro 10mg for 3.5 years. I am more interested in getting off this drug without all the side effects than with doing it quickly. I figure if I reduce the dose by 1-2 mg per day over several months I may not have the severe side effects most experience. I tried once before to ween by halfing the pill or the every other day method and just couldn’t function clear headed enough and experienced anxiety (which is something I did not have before the Lexapro). Has anyone tried this method? Thanks
