This either results in fewer withdrawal problems, or the withdrawal happens later down the road, maybe a month later. Lexapro
leaves the body quite a bit more quickly, and so you are much more subject to a bad withdrawal
by quitting abruptly. None of these should be quit abruptly, but the short half life ones especially so. So ditto with the other posts, do this under the careful monitoring of a psychiatrist who understands withdrawal just in case, though for most it's not that big a deal.
