DD20 has been on Lexapro 10 mg for over a year for depression. She's been doing great and decided she wanted to see if she could come off of it. She took 5 mg for almost two weeks to try and wean herself. She was fine for the first few days, but now is suffering some withdrawal from it. Today she is just in a miserble (equatible to the worst PMS she could have) mood. She has also suffered from dizziness and mind zaps (as some people have called them).
If you have come off of an anti-depressant, how long did it take to feel somewhat normal again? I told her she might just have to suck it up for a few weeks to see if it goes away and if it doesn't, she'll have to see her doctor. I have also told her to call her doctor on Monday--but she probably won't.
