Re: Lexapro "withdrawal"

Not sure if anyone looks at this post but I need some help. Here is goes.

I was on Lexapro for about 15 years at 10 mg to 20 mg a day. Wanted to stop taking it because I did not feel like I needed it anymore and it was causing me not to sleep (only sleeping maybe 30 minutes to an hour a night), liver issues and weight problems to name a few. I tapered off by decreasing my dosage by 5 mg every 8 days over a period of over a little a month. I have been off of the Lexapro now for about 2 weeks and I am feeling worse now than when I started it 15 years ago.

I cry all of the time for no reason, severe anger issues, bloating, depression and feeling on edge and nervous. I never had bloating, feelings of on edge, nervousness or anger issues before. And I never really cried before and the depression seems to be worse than before I started the medicine. The anger issues are really bothering me. I do not like feeling this way. I just start crying for no reason or become angry and very antsy. I can't work or live like this.

Will it ever end? Any suggestions? :(
