Lexapro Withdrawl.
Feb 22, 2007
Hi everyone :) I'm 23 and started having severe panic attacks at age 20. I've been on lexapro (starting with 20 mg, and then going down to 15, then 10 throughout the past 3 years) and I've felt like my mindset and panic attacks are finally under control for the most part, just getting better and better. I decided I should just stop taking it, because I can be without it, and I'm strong enough (I told myself) I just stopped taking my lexapro 2 weeks ago, cold turkey. I know that's not a great thing to do, but it's really expensive, and I just told myself I can do it! I have definitely experienced some withdrawl symptoms, mostly crying a lot, mood swings, and shaky/hot and cold flashes.

Last night I did have a slight panic attack symptom, but that just turned into being really sad and crying for the most part, and some throbbing heart beats.

I just wonder if anyone else has stopped taking theirs, and what their symptoms were like...and if they made it through ok! I'd love to hear something positive about getting off of it, you know? :)
