I, personally, had a horrible time both on Lexapro and horrible withdrawal
while coming off...headaches, flu-like symptoms, confusion. I would discuss a schedule
on which to wean off the medication with your doctor. You know yourself best and how you are feeling...once you start coming off the medication, if you start to feel bad or have withdrawal symptoms, slow it down a bit. Like I said though, not everyone has such bad times getting off.
