fanoflexapro: Lexapro and Kindling


Recommended Posts

I have experienced the dosages higher than 5 mg on lexapro but I want return the previous dosage (20mg atlest 10mg promptly) for depression and ocd.



I am planning to stay on 5 mg until 23 June (1 mouth) and respectively up to 7.5 and 10 mg.



One day I will reach again 20 mg on lexapro. What should I do to reduce the risk of kindling (nerve sensivity I experience)


Hello I am new here :)

Hello, we are a forum designed to assist people tapering off psychiatric drugs, and recovering from psychiatric drug withdrawal. We do not offer advice on using antidepressants to treat symptoms of depression and/or anxiety. I am sure there are other forums that cater to this.

Erimus, I mean I have kind of kindling from lexapro and I wait to get any advice to manage it so that I have started the topic. I had made mistakes while writing.
