    I gather that all the people on this site want to get off anti-depressants. I appreciate your reflections and thoughts on the tapering process, and find it a relief that you have a psychiatrist who not only supported your decision to taper but suggested a slow taper. Writing this post is a good reminder to me to be grateful for my mental health and to stop worrying about my external image and my ego. July 19, — am. It took me 14 months.

    After Two Decades, I Decided to Go Off Antidepressants forum? From that point on, varying doses of SSRIs — Zoloft, Paxil, Lexapro, Celexa — were a part of my life. Then, last year, I decided to wean myself.Stopping antidepressants such as bupropion Wellbutrin that do not affect serotonin systems — dopamine and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors — seems less troublesome over all, although some patients develop extreme irritability.

    Coming off your medication can cause antidepressant withdrawal – and could for more than a year after they stopped taking antidepressants prescribed for.I'd been missing doses of the medication and I felt like I needed the tablets less and less.

    Withdrawal symptoms vs. relapse. If someone has mood-related symptoms following antidepressant withdrawal, it does not always mean a relapse. To.Bacteria can also prompt inflammation markers to rise, prompting more widespread inflammation across the body, including in the heart.

    The year-old had been using antidepressants for around 20 years and her mental health declined after weaning off the medication.It's only a small thing but it's not something I'm free from.

    I endured 11 years of protracted antidepressant withdrawal syndrome withdrawal syndrome after stopping antidepressants: a descriptive.Thanks for your article — I have been on Lexapro for about 10 years and thought I needed to try another antidepressant because I had some break through anxiety as menopause approached — this has been an awful process with all sort of awful physical and mental feelings … I think I just need to go back on My Lexapro.

    See your doctor if you get severe withdrawal symptoms after you stop taking antidepressants. Alternative approaches can be used, such as reintroducing another.I plan to stay on 5mg for a couple of months, so that my brain will adjust and then get down to 0.

    If the symptoms are mild, you'll probably be reassured that they're just temporary, the result of the medication clearing your system.

    I was also having some neurological symptoms and I wondered if they would go away if I came off the Prozac.

    It sounds like you might be like me, where lexapro withdrawal is just too much of a shock to your system.

    Clinicians generally recommend staying on the medication for six to nine months before considering going off antidepressants.

    I was put on Prozac about 30 years ago after a bout with post partum anxiety and depression and just never came off.

    My psychiatrist switched me to a liquid form of Lexapro and told me to reduce my daily dose of 10 milligrams by one milligram every two weeks.

    Funny enough I always referred to my lexapro as the instrument that finally allowed me to see my tried self.
