I'm going to get myself off of this stuff ASAP (you can't just quit cold turkey. You have to gradually be taken off of it).
For anyone it may be. See doctor then if ok start exercise routine. It will get better if u lose weight etc. did for me
I am on my fourth day of quitting Lexapro cold turkey. Yes, I am itching! I am hoping that this goes away, along with a nagging dizziness if I turn my head too fast or stand up abruptly
I have been taking lexapro for years and have gained a total of 20 lbs and my eating habits have never changed I blame the lexapro and now I will slowly stop taking it due to this fact.I've tried losing the weight just about starving myself ,walking nothing works I truly believe it is the lexapro>
I'm currently trying to get off of Lexapro. I've been taking 10-20 mg for the past 5 yrs. I haven't experienced the noises, but certainly the sensation of swishing when turning my head side to side, as well as the vertigo/dizziness. Many other people cite the same sensations as this when withdrawing from Lexapro.
Dose anyone know if Lexapro considered a benzo? NO, definitely not! As a matter of fact, I do not know of any current SSRI antidepressants that have BZE's (benzos) mixed with or included in there manufacturing process....
I did and ended it with having my gallbladder removed and weaning off Lexapro in one week. My first problems with my gallbladder arose a couple of months into taking Lexapro for the first time years before. I stopped and then I had a pregnancy and about 5 year with no lexapro. When I had a traumatic family sitiuation I tried Lexapro again and again a couple of months into it I started to have gallbladder attacks. I took one lexapro after my surgery and it made me so sick I have vowed to never touch it again. It sucked because it really did great for my anxiety.
Nope. Nope. Nope.
i really hope 2 leagly ive been self medicating with them the lexapro stole my sex drive i couldn't get a boner at all i stopped cold turkey and started on benzos and now i feel great
I switched from 10mg lexapro to 30 mg cymbalta for 2 wk and then 60 mg. Have had good results. For one thing I quit gaining weight, as I did on lexapro. Cymbalta also helped my muscle aches and pains as an added plus.
taking 80mg can make you sick, but it's unlikely to cause long term damage. I took 940 mg of lexapro the other day and it made me confused, made me vomit and i had seizures but im fine now.
Ask your doctor ! There is no guarantee that anyone on here is qualified to give medical advice.
i have been o lexapro for a year and gant gain at all before i started lex my weight were 149 now iam at 127 i would to know if any one know how long it take you to gain weight back
yes i have a similar problem. maybe it is because you are less depressed, but in my case i don't feel that way.
I started on 10 mgs of Lexapro and experienced tolerable but not fun side effects for about a month. After then, I started feeling a lot better. About a year later, my doctor and I decided to try 20 mgs. Again, I experienced tolerable but not fun side effects for about a month (maybe two at most) and then started feeling better. Again, after a year of being on 20 mgs, my doctor and I increased my medication to 30 mgs. This time I only experienced side effects for a couple weeks (one month max) and started feeling better. So, for me, the side effects lasted about a month with each increase in dosage. Hope this helpts, but it could really be different for anyone. If your side effects aren't tolerable for the time being, tell your doctor.
Technically anyone can juggle fire, although it is only recommended for experienced jugglers. Safety is vital, so the supervision by an experienced fire juggler is advantageous, if not essential.
Give it peptobismol.. that should do the trick!
What type are the symptoms?
It could be. But, there were only few who experienced like this.
If he or she is experienced and mature and responsible.
I had great success with Lexapro. I was given it for panic disorder last year and am currently weaning off of it, due to the weight gain. I've put on 45 lbs. in 1 year of taking it. That's the only negative long-term side effect. I am basically panic free now.
Well, an experienced-basted question would be a question that you would have had to experience to answer. E.g. Does it hurt to have your ears pierced? That is an experienced-basted question because anyone that had not gotten there ears pierced wouldn't be able to answer the question because they haven't experienced the feeling.
