Hello All, it's been a long time since I have logged in here and posted. My story is located here:
I have been good, fully recovered from Lexapro and Cipro use. I don't think about withdrawal anymore. The answer was TIME and GOD in both cases. For those that are new to withdrawal, don't fret, you will be OK. I know the beginning months are scary but it won't last forever. Feel free
what you described was EXACTLY like me, in 2008. On Feb 27, 2008, I took the last dose of Lexapro after a 1-month fast taper per the doctor's order. At day 3, I felt moody. At Day 5, I felt nauseous, moody, dizzy. That lasted for 3 or so months. I called that Phase I.
Phase II kicked in around month 4ish. It was very distinct from Phase I. What did I feel you ask?
- through the roof anxiety
- crippling depression (worst than the original issue)
- weight loss
