Blueheaven posted a topic in Introductions and updatesI have been taking 20 mg of Lexapro for nearly 4 years now after having multiple pregnancy losses/stillborn. I began working out late last year and felt great and thought it was time to wean off this medication. I had finally accepted I'll never have another child. My family Dr gave me a timeline to wean which I thought seemed pretty quick, but did it. I was off within 2 months. Since then I've felt worse than I did when I first started taking the meds. I've had thoughts of harming myself, extreme depression, anxiety, insomnia and just feel like I have the flu all the time. I think I need to start back on meds but don't know how much to take. I just want to feel normal again. Problem is my Dr is on paternity leave until end of February. If anyone could please give me some direction I would be so grateful!
