If there is not a significant reason (financial issues, medical problems where the Lexapro
is contraindicated) to go off the Lexapro
, then simply don't. If it has helped you, then there is no reason you can not continue to take it, even long term. Especially because you are on a fairly low dose, you have lots of wiggle room should the dose ever need to be increased.
MANY MANY of us have found ourselves caught in the trap of wanting to stop taking meds, for a host of reasons.
