Ok.I have been off of lexapro for 12 days now.Unfortunatley I have started taking the meds again.My withdrawal symptoms were so bad I couldnt take them.I did quit cold turkey which I knew was a no no.Anyway I am on them only to wean off correctly.After I wean off I am going to start an herbal regimen with st.johns wart.I have read that this is very effective and some countries even cover it with insurance because of its effectivness.I did discuss this with my doctor,so anyone wanting to go this route please call your doctor.Theres also no side effects or withdrawal from herbals.Which is wonderful.I encourage eveyone who interested to do your own research on the internet about st.johns wart.Good luck. :-D
