Honestly....I started taking this drug with NO IDEA of the withdrawal side effects...I had no effects from the drug really so when I felt like I wanted to stop taking it ( don't really like to have a lot of meds in my body) I was REALLY unpleasantly surprised when I was sick as a dog a week following my cold turkey quit of 20mg a day.
I'm one day past my week mark...and for the past three days, I've been very naseated, dizzy, have heart palpitations, that lead to a "squishing" sound in my ears, running to the bathroom pretty much constantly and had night sweats and violent dreams for a couple of days....anyways NOT fun and don't reccommend the cold turkey approach....if I were still in the same town as the doc who persribed it I would def wean off of it, although, from what I've read the final "off" is still not fun.....
for me....here's what I do....I'm good for about 2 hours in the morning, try to get as much done then as I can..drink lots of water and eat a bannana....about 11 I'm pretty sick...so I take 1 .25 (very small) pill or xanax and then wait 30 min while a cook a HOT meal (very important) by that time the nausea is fading and the hot meal really helps me feel better....that usually helps me hang for the rest of the day until my symptoms start to completely disappear around 5. If I get too dizzy It helps to either take a hot shower or lay down underneath a bunch of blankets...heat really does seem to help with this....anyways hope it helps someone else...today is the third day of the really bad symptoms and it feels better than the last two..hopefully I'm on the downhill slope....
It is not recommended to stop Lexapro cold turkey. Everyone's withdrawal period is different, and the amount of time it takes to be fully off the drug depends on many factors.
