Initially when I started tapering off Lexapro I was so hopeful. I had this surge of energy – I changed my dietary habits- cut caffeine, cut gluten and started taking supplements along with a daily exercise regimen, calorie counting and also with a deep focus on disciplined meditation. It has been 20 days since I shaved off 1/4 from my Lexapro 10 mg and today is the first day I felt keenly the presence of my old enemy depression. I was easily excited, anxious and prone to spiralling, ruminating and I felt like there was this painful heaviness in my heart that won’t go away. I started to doubt my tapering process. I am also seeing a holistic therapist who is helping me with the process but it’s harder than anticipated… and it’s only 1/4. Is there anyone out there who has successfully weaned off Lexapro 10 mg after a decade? (I’m 30 – female). Please share some encouragement those who have done it before. Really need all the support out there!
