Lexapro Withdrawal

Lexapro withdrawal symptoms can occur at any dosage. Lexapro withdrawl symptoms can begin within eight hours of a missed dose and can last from one to eight weeks. The particularly nasty Effexor withdrawal symptoms can easily last beyond eight weeks.

Obviously, the best way to avoid Lexapro withdrawal is to avoid Lexapro. Consider using Deprex, the natural alternative, for depression symptoms. Deprex quickly, safely, effectively and gently eases depression symptoms without the side effects or withdrawal symptoms typically associated with Lexapro and other antidepressants.

If already using Lexapro, the best advice is to taper off slowly instead of going “cold turkey.” It is important to develop a specific tapering schedule with your health care provider to minimize Lexapro withdrawl symptoms. Anyone discontinuing Lexapro runs the risk of suffering from withdrawal symptoms.

Over 50 different symptoms have been reported with antidepressant withdrawal, with dizziness nausea, fatigue, headache, gait instability and insomnia the most common.

Effexor, Paxil, Zoloft and Lexapro top the “Worst Offenders” list of withdrawal symptoms. Almost 80 percent of people experience withdrawal symptoms when discontinuing Effexor. At least half the people who stop using Paxil experience withdrawal symptoms. The newer medications Serzone, Wellbutrin and Remeron rarely produce withdrawal symptoms.

Withdrawal is most common with antidepressants that have a short half-life. A half-life is the amount of time it takes for half the drug to clear from your body. Effexor, tricyclics, MAOIs and most SSRIs all have the potential to cause withdrawal symptoms.

Of the SSRIs, Prozac generally causes the least amount of withdrawal symptoms because of its long half-life of two to four days. In comparison, Effexor has a half-life of about five hours. Effexor withdrawal symptoms can begin after missing a single dose.

Withdrawal Symptoms:
Abdominal discomfort.
Flu symptoms and general malaise.
Chills and hot flashes.
Crying spells.
Suicidal thoughts.
Muscle and joint pain.
Jolting electric "zaps.”
Tingling sensations.
Anorexia, agitation.
Sleep disturbance and insomnia.
Vivid dreams.
Visual hallucinations.
Blurred vision.
Gait disturbances.
Memory and concentration difficulties.

One particularly disturbing antidepressant withdrawal symptom is hallucinations. While working through the physical and emotional effects of Lexapro withdrawl symptoms, hallucinations can make the sufferer feel as if they are going crazy. You are not going crazy. You unwittingly became hooked on a drug that your doctor, by prescribing it, told you was okay.

Lexapro can cause serious side effects. Weight gain and sexual dysfunction are common Lexapro side effects. Less common but life threatening is the increased risk of suicide.

Like Celex, Paxil, Prozac, Zoloft and other SSRI antidepressants, Deprex aids in the production, increase and release of serotonin. Unlike prescriptive antidepressant medications, Deprex is a non-prescriptive, all-natural “antidepressant” that provides the necessary dietary precursors to complement the body's own ability to produce and release Serotonin. Deprex also affects Norepinephrine activity while reducing Cortisol secretion. This natural rebalancing of brain biochemistry calms anxiety while easing depression - all without side effects.

Do not stop taking Lexapro without first talking to your doctor. Your doctor may need to gradually reduce the dose before stopping Lexapro completely. Suddenly stopping Lexapro may cause unpleasant and potentially serious side effects and withdrawal symptoms.
