danielle26: Lexapro to Trintillex


Recommended Posts

Relieved to find this forum. I usually do not join things like this, but I need the support and after 10 years on Lexapro it doesn't have the same effectiveness. 

I have been told by my doc to cross taper to Trintillex and am too scared to start so I am going to slowly taper off.... so happy I found your history!!

I tried to go from 20 to 15 to 10 mg and got really sick so I am currently at 15mg of Lex and will stay here until I am adjusted. I get stomach aches, nausea, and just feel up and down.

When did you make these dose changes?

What are your current symptoms?

Are you, or have you taken any drugs or supplements in the last 24 months, if so please list them, name, dose and timescale.

You are almost certainly experiencing W/D (withdrawal symptoms) from the changes of dose.

Lexapro is a powerful drug and the changes you made were much larger than we would recommend, including the updose.
