I came to this in hindsight as I was niave about withdrawal. I tapered to 1 mg Lexapro and stopped. 5 days later noticed insomina, change in appetite, thoughts coming back so I started back on 2.5mg as I didn't realize i needed to start back on the last dose used. Added anxiety and no changes in symptoms 2 weeks later the dr told me to increase to 5 mg. This has been for 5 weeks and I notice no stabilization of symptoms, almost worse then before. I'm not sure if I'm stuck in withdrawal because I am sensitized to lexpro and the high dose is too much and will become toxic because it isn't being reabsorbed? Im worried that at my next appt the dr. will want to increase my dose or switch to new med. I don't know if I can taper back down being this unstable.
